Following the television broadcast in June this year, Alan Bennett's Talking Heads comes to the Crucible with Imelda Staunton in A Lady of Letters and Maxine Peake in Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet.
Lady of Letters
Performed by Imelda Staunton, directed by Jonathan Kent
Irene Ruddock spends her life dashing off letters of complaint. When she’s not writing, she’s keeping an eye on the couple opposite and a little girl with bruises. But when the police come by, it’s Irene whose life is turned upside down. Imelda Staunton plays Miss Ruddock.
Miss Fozzard Finds her Feet
Performed by Maxine Peake, directed by Sarah Frankcom
Miss Fozzard has a new chiropodist, Mr. Dunderdale, whose attention to her feet seems sometimes to go beyond the line of duty. Their weekly appointments soon raise the tricky question of who’s treating whom? Maxine Peake plays Miss Fozzard.
