The Iconic Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’.

If you want to be emotionally moved and moved to laugh out loud then you must see Waiheke Theatre Company’s upcoming production of Alan Bennett’s ‘Talking Heads’.

First staged on BBCTV in April 1988, these darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting monologues were considered ground-breaking and helped to confirm Bennett’s reputation as one of Britain’s finest modern dramatists.

Bennett’s work also includes the wonderful true story of ‘Lady in the van’ and ‘Madness of King George’ which were both nominated for BAFTA awards.

Make sure you do not miss three of our local actors performing to their very best and relishing every delicious piece of text.

"Sometimes there is no next time, no time-outs, no second chances. Sometimes it’s now or never." - Alan Bennett

Doris will draw you in, sharing her most private and painful of moments looking back over her life. Does Doris face the threat of an old people’s home, or worse…
