Now that the sun has turned the corner and is making its way back towards longer and brighter days – well, we hope they’ll be brighter – thoughts are again turning towards lighter-hearted entertainment. With that in mind we are kicking off the New Year with not one – not two – not three – but FOUR of Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’ – a real feast for his very many fans in East Sussex.
The enduring popularity of ‘Talking Heads’ is due to the perfectly observed characters who entertain successive audiences with their timeless blend of humour and sadness. Each one presents us with traits and idiosyncrasies which we recognise in so many of the people we meet and also – if we are completely honest – in ourselves.
This February will see four of Seaford’s premier division actors providing a fly-on-the-wall insight into the vagaries of life – and death – in The Synergy Theatre’s production of four ‘Talking Heads’ at The Clinton Centre.
Sue Shephard, Ann Mabey, Josie Hobbs and Alan Lade take us into the minutiae of life as lived by four very disparate people who, between them, cover practically every conceivable facet of what Malraux called ‘La Condition Humaine’. Alan Bennett gently peels away the protective layers in which we wrap ourselves and shows us as we really are through these archetypical characters. Be prepared to laugh a lot and maybe cry a little.
The production will take place at The Clinton Centre, Seaford from Wednesday 15th until Saturday 18th February. For booking detail see our Current performance page.
I look forward to seeing you at a Synergy production soon.
