Talking Heads II

26th Feb

2pm & 7.30pm

Talking Heads II

The Athenaeum Masqueraders bring back their acclaimed production of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads II!

From the 2018 & 2019 NODA SW Best Musical nominated group, who brought shows like Oliver, 9 to 5 The Musical, The Addams Family and The Full Monty and Legally Blonde, The Athenaeum Masqueraders bring to you three of Alan Bennett’s hit dramatic monologues in Talking Heads II in February 2022.


In January 2017, The Athenaeum Masqueraders staged three of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads featuring hit dramatic monologues from the 1980s BBC production. The group return to stage 2022, reviving three more monologues including:

A Cream Cracker Under the Settee: Doris, a widow, lives alone. Refusing to relinquish her independence, she surreptitiously cleans when her home help, Zulema, is absent. When we meet her, she has just fallen over whilst attempting to dust a picture frame high on the wall. The day goes on; unable to get help, Doris reminisces about her quiet, uneventful life with its joys and sadnesses.

Her Big Chance: Meet Lesley, an actress. She has just completed a video (‘targeted chiefly on West Germany’) in which she plays Travis, a career girl who enjoys life, spends a remarkable amount of time topless and shoots a man with a harpoon gun. She tells all, blind to the sinister undertones of her story as well as to her own self-delusions and gullibility.

Soldiering On: Muriel’s husband Ralph has just died, leaving her rather well off – until, that is, her son Giles gets his hands on the money and Muriel comes out the loser.



Saturday Matinee 26th February – 2.00pm start

Saturday Evening – 26th February – 7.30pm Start.



A Cream Cracker Under the Settee, Her Big Chance & Soldiering On by Alan Bennett
This amateur production of “Talking Heads” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk

Meet Tommy Atkins

17th Jun


Meet Tommy Atkins

Presented by Beyond Eternity Promotions Ltd
‘Meet Tommy Atkins’ takes the audience not just through Tommy’s war, but also his life back home in Britain post war. We learn of his experiences in the trenches – fighting on the Somme, at Passchendaele and Loos; and also of the boredom, the loss and indeed the comradeship. Returning to Britain, Tommy shows us how a generation of returning men were maltreated but how ultimately it was his generation that forced through the foundations of the Welfare State.
From the beginning of the Great War to the end of the Second, Private Tommy Atkins was there.
This is his story.

Starts 7.30 pm

  • Tickets £12
  • Seniors & Students £10
