Alan Bennett is an institution in Britain – he can encapsulate a world of voices within a single monologue. Bennett sealed his reputation as the master of observation with Talking Heads, his series of 12 such monologues. Darkly comic, tragically poignant and wonderfully uplifting the series is widely regarded as a modern classic. Bed Among the Lentils features Susan, an alcoholic vicar's wife who distracts herself from her ambitious husband and his doting parishioners by conducting an affair with a grocer Ramesh Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process.
