Prepare to be entertained with this delightful triple bill of Alan Bennett adaptations from the BBC. Each story bristles with the distinctive wit, intelligence and irony that characterise Bennett’s well-loved narrative style, ensuring that these audiobook titles will be thoroughly enjoyed by fans and newcomers alike.
The collection begins with ‘A Visit from Miss Prothero’, in which the retired Arthur Dodsworth’s peaceful nap is disturbed when he receives an unexpected visit from the charmless Miss Prothero. The eagerness to her gait seems oddly unfitting to her character, until it emerges that she has a bombshell for him on the tip of her tongue which she is desperate to drop.
Next, ‘Say Something Happened’ tells the laugh-out-loud tale of an inexperienced social worker who calls in on an elderly couple to give them aid. But are they really the ones who need help?
The final story- ‘Two in Torquay’- brings together a middle-aged pair of hotel residents in the Cornish Riviera. As they share their stories, suspicions mount. Are either of them really who they claim to be?
Now, for the first time, you have the opportunity to purchase these hilarious, moving BBC adaptations for yourself on CD audiobook, or as downloadable audiobooks on MP3.
