Love to hear him speak he has a great accent. Seen a couple of his plays always enjoyed them.

Loved his 'Talking Heads' series. Some wonderful characters, especially the drunken, adulterous vicar's wife in The Hand of God.

Alan Bennett has revealed so much that is touching and human about the normal, mundane existence of British working and middle class people. His work is really a justification of the importance of the individual in a society demanding conformation.

 


Winning isn't everything. Without the defeats we would not value the victories. Still, it's a shame we can't play Chelsea every week.
