Alan Bennett Æ 7 Free download

Alan Bennett Æ 7 Free download Free download Talking Heads 107 Chi ha letto Nudi e crudi La cerimonia del massaggio o La signora nel furgone sa già che la sulfurea comicità di Alan Bennett si sprigiona perlopiù da situazioni in apparenza dimesse un appartamento svaligiato una commemorazione funebre i rapsodici contatti con una barbona invadente e non troppo amabile Ma nei celeberrimi monologhi per la televisione – trasmessi dalla BBC nel 1987 e affidati all’interpretazione delle più grandi attrici inglesi da Julie Walters a Maggie Smith oltreché dell’autore stesso – Ben. Intimate isolation amid loss pandemic reading and viewingThis book contains thirteen sharp intimate but unsentimental monologues eleven by middle aged or elderly women plus a couple of men Their bittersweet lives mostly in and around a version of Leeds in Yorkshire are carefully revealed by Alan Bennett an archetypal national treasure a term of endearment he resists They were written for performance mostly with specific actors in mind Bennett himself played Graham in A Chip in the Sugar The first batch was in 1988 and the second in 1998 In 2020 ten of them plus a couple of new ones were cast with different actors filmed and broadcast during Coronavirus lockdown then staged when lockdown eased They re brilliant in all three mediums though I find it most powerful when I can see and hear the body language and intonation of the specific actor as I readSlow partial expositionEach narrator describes their apparently simple straightforward and conventional life but gradually hints at sadness secrets and sinister undercurrents In some it s just a breach of etiuette or societal expectations in a couple the taboo is far greaterAs a reader or viewer you fill in the gaps before the narrator does The clues are in what is unsaid They all hold something back even from themselves It s the opposite of confessional reality TVImage Missing pieces in a blank jigsaw SourceOn first encounter the stories are darker than you initially expect On subseuent occasions you relish spotting the clues and yet each retains the power to surprise and move and sometimes to shock uiet catastrophes not cosy onesThey ve been part of the literary and TV fabric throughout my adult life I regularly return to them with the fond familiarity of visiting great aunts who I m concerned about Doubly powerful in a pandemicLoneliness loss and isolation are horribly real for many of us right now as well as being common themes in the monologues Watching the new versions on TV when I ve hardly met let alone touched anyone from another household is especially poignant Losing faith wanting escape drinking too much and keeping or uncovering secrets take on new resonance Guilt is another recurring theme especially guilt about things not done or not acknowledged Something about lockdown triggers guilt I find Another touchpointIntimate pieces intimately doneTheatres in London s West End have not reopened yet September 2020 Even at drastically reduced capacity the pinch points of entrances exits aisles and loos in old theatres would not meet current guidelines But the Bridge Theatre less than three years old and with links to The National Theatre Nicholas Hytner and Alan Bennett is spacious and adaptable so they have started staging pairs of Talking Heads They ve ripped out 75% of the seats there s no interval and everyone is masked throughout except the two actors who perform separately It s not financially viable it s about morale than money After months where the only public indoor space I ve been is the supermarket and recently hairdresser my excitement was tinged with anxiety As we walked into the auditorium this is what we sawImage Bridge Theatre as the audience took their seats for a Covid safe performance of two Talking Heads monologues 7 September 2020 We sat in intimate isolation amid loss a missing row in front a missing row behind and seats to our left and right were absent Tragically aptWhen the lights went down it felt as if the two of us were alone with the actor So much so that at times I wanted to reach out and touch her hand consolingly except I ve been conditioned out of such gestures in recent months The Shrine performed by Monica DolanThis is a new one for 2020 It s not one of my favourites but that may be because it s not yet as familiar I saw it on TV before the stage and haven t read it but also because the ending was something of an anticlimax When Lorna s birdwatching biker husband dies she visits the site of the fatal collision Rather than reaching closure she cultivates it as a shrine with flowers a seat and a schedule of rituals It was no surprise when one day she finds flowers left by someone else Bed Among the Lentils performed by Lesley ManvilleIt was originally performed by Maggie Smith known to many as Professor McGonagall Dowager Countess of Grantham andor Bennett s The Lady in the Van Manville made it her own though The Sermon was about sex I didn t actually nod off though I have heard it before Marriage gives the OK to sex is the gist of it but while it is far from being the be all and end all you can say that again sex is nevertheless the supreme joy of the married state and a symbol of the relationship between us and God So Geoffrey concludes when we put our money in the plate it is a symbol of everything in our lives we are offering to God and that includes our sex I could only find 10p Susan is married to a vicar but is unsuited to the role she s not a fan of God or attending church as she says if her husband were a barrister she wouldn t have to attend court submits to occasional dessicated couplings with him and has no skill or interest in flower arranging which her husband s fan club treat as a competitive sport Mrs Shrubsole s Forest Murmurs especially She s lonely bored and unfulfilled there s no mention of a previous career nor children She seeks solace in predictable and then less predictable ways One secret is revealed and another remains hidden Salvation is prompted by one worked at by another and credit for both is claimed by another Ultimately the most Christian characters are not those who would claim the label The only preference I have is to shove my chrysanthemums up her nose but instead I practise a bit of Christian forbearance and go stick them in a vase by the lectern Image Monica Dolan left and Lesley Manville right in 2020 TV productions Source Read and watchBackground to and history of the series HERE including a list of titles with a plot
