Publisher's Summary

Six more monologues from Britain's foremost writer delivered by the nation's favorite performers. In these six new pieces Alan Bennett retains the gripping stories, intensity of delivery, and masterly style of his original monologues. The suburban normality of the world his characters inhabit once again belies their lives of secrets, revelations, fears, crimes, and passions. They tell their stories, and in doing so reveal more than they know of the humour, passion, and sadness of their lives. Alongside the original pieces, these superb monologues form one of the great contributions to television drama. Included in this collection are:

Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet, with Patricia Routledge
The Hand of God, with Eileen Atkins
Playing Sandwiches, with David Haig
The Outside Dog, with Julie Walters
Nights in the Gardens of Spain, with Penelope Wilton
Waiting for the Telegram, with Thora Hird

Follow up to the original Talking Heads is just as wonderful as its predecessor. Excellent performances make the audio version the definitive version for this series. This is a recording that you will be listening to over and over again.

The perfect blend of tragi-comedy from the pen of one of England's best writers, delivered by the cream of the UK's acting profession. Unmissable.
