Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Streaming tickets are not available for this show due to performance rights reasons.

Please note that Wednesday's performance will feature the monologues Her Big Chance and A Lady of Letters, whilst A Chip in the Sugar and Soldiering On will be performed on Thursday.

Talking Heads is a series of monologues written by Alan Bennett, as well-loved and poignant today as they were thirty years ago. Bennett's characters are unassuming and the writing often funny, but they tell stories both heartbreaking and uplifting about ordinary people dealing with death, guilt, and isolation.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
