Talking Heads

  • Awards: Drama Desk Award: Featured Actress , OBIE Award: Performance , Drama Critics Circle Award: Foreign Play
  • Opening Date: April 6, 2003  

A series of twelve separate monologues performed in two parts. 

Dealing with a variety of subjects, such as loneliness, hubris, and romantic irony, the mini-plays give some hint as to where they are set - mostly in Leeds, although not, as Bennett stresses, the real Leeds, rather one that exists in his head.

"Michael Engler's admirable staging of this intricate portraits of middle-class desolation is a tasty theatrical delicacy." - Variety
