Well-paced, exceptionally acted and engagingly narrated, this high quality BBC play demonstrates audio entertainment at its very best.
Alan Bennett is known for his exceptional ability to marry wit with irony and intrigue with poignancy. Known best for his highly acclaimed plays including ‘The History Boys’, ‘Forty Years On’ and ‘The Woman of No Importance’, the commendable British talent has also written a number of award winning novels, as well as having appeared in benchmarks of early British satire such as ‘On the Margin’.
The ‘Triple Bill’ collection also includes ‘A Visit From Miss Prothero’, as well as the laugh out loud ‘Say Something Happened’. Starring the likes of Judi Dench, Hugh Lloyd, Patricia Routledge and Brian Wilde, as well as Alan Bennett himself, these three titles sit perfectly together as fine examples of British entertainment.
Available for you to download as an MP3 audiobook, ‘Two in Torquay’ is the perfect means to a spot of quality afternoon escapism.
