A Triple Bill

"Bed Among the Lentils" is a dramatic monologue written by Alan Bennett, as part of his Talking Heads series for the BBC.

Susan, an alcoholic, nervous vicar's wife who has to travel into Leeds to go to the off-licence because of her debts with the local shop keeper, distracts herself from her ambitious, and, as she sees him, vainly insensitive husband and his doting parishioners by conducting an affair with a nearby grocer, Ramesh Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process.

 

“Bella” by Anthony L Church

Written by Tony as a monologue for Bella (his heroine in his play ‘Bella and the Tygerman’, a retelling of the ‘Beauty and the Beast’ story;) Tony here explores in more depth how Bella falls in love with the Tygerman (the Beast).

 

“Blue Remembered Hills” by Dennis Potter was first produced as a television play, on the 30 January 1979 as part of the BBC's Play for Today.

The play concerns a group of children playing in the Forest of Dean one summer afternoon in 1943. It ends abruptly in tragedy as a result of the children's actions. Perhaps the most striking feature of the play is that, although the characters are children, they are played by adult actors. The dialogue is written in a Forest of Dean dialect, which Potter also uses extensively in other dramas incorporating a Forest of Dean setting, most notably Pennies from Heaven (1978) and The Singing Detective (1986)
