Alex Jennings stars as Alan Bennett in Untold Stories at the Duchess Theatre, featuring two autobiographical recollections by Alan Bennett – Hymn directed by Nadia Fall and Cocktail Sticks directed by Nicholas Hytner.
Untold Stories features two autobiographical recollections by Alan Bennett. Hymn is a touching memoir of music in childhood, directed by Nadia Fall, with an evocative score by George Fenton.
Cocktail Sticks, directed by Nicholas Hytner, revisits some of the themes and conversations of Alan Bennett’s memoir A Life Like Other People’s. A son talks to his dead father as his mother yearns for a different life. It’s funny, tender and sad.
Alex Jennings plays Alan Bennett in both pieces.
