Performed by the author and five of Britain's leading actresses, Alan Bennett's tales are full of quirky, insightful detail that bring the characters vividly to life. From Julie Walters' portrayal of an actress seeking fame to Anna Massey's alcoholic vicar's wife, these individuals are linked by their self-delusion, desperation and vulnerability. In these compelling pieces, Bennett displays the wry observation, knowing irony and tender understatement that have ensured his rightful place at the forefront of contemporary writing. The stories included are: ‘A Chip in the Sugar’ read by Alan Bennett; ‘A Lady of Letters’ read by Patricia Routledge; ‘Bed Among the Lentils’ read by Anna Massey; ‘Soldiering On’ read by Stephanie Cole; ‘Her Big Chance’ read by Julie Walters and ‘A Cream Cracker Under the Settee’ read by Thora Hird.
