Talking Heads: Nights in the Gardens of Spain & Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet

Talking Heads: Nights in the Gardens of Spain & Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet

A repertoire of twelve one-person plays during September and October, using the Bridge’s flexible auditorium to provide 250 socially distanced seats. If the season is delayed, automatic refunds will be given for cancelled performances.

“Each of the short plays that make up Talking Heads is a perfectly distilled masterpiece, sometimes disturbing, often hilarious and always profoundly humane.”

Overview

During April and May, while the Bridge Theatre was closed, we worked with the BBC to produce Alan Bennett’s landmark Talking Heads monologues. They were broadcast on BBC1 in June. Now, nine of them come to the stage in a series of unique double bills, all of them with the same leading actors whose performances were universally acclaimed on television.

Nights in the Garden of Spain:

Rosemary recalls the morning she was accosted by her neighbour Fran, who’d shot her husband. Though she’s been sexually abused for five years, Fran is given a two-year sentence; and as Rosemary’s friendship with her deepens, she has to look again at her own marriage. Tamsin Grieg plays Rosemary.

Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet:

Miss Fozzard has a new chiropodist, Mr. Dunderdale, whose attention to her feet seems sometimes to go beyond the line of duty. Their weekly appointments soon raise the tricky question of who’s treating whom? Maxine Peake plays Miss Fozzard.
