Alan Bennett Monologues

A Lady of Letters

Miss Ruddock writes letters - not, unfortunately, social communications filled with harmless news, but letters of complaint, comment and, occasionally, officious praise to various businesses and government departments. She complains about the lack of care she assumes the child living opposite is receiving and ends up in prison. There, ironically, Miss Ruddock finds freedom and is, for possibly the first time, happy.

Hallowed Ground

St John's Church in Tisbury and its ancient Yew link five local characters across 300 years in this award-winning, one-act play about protest, poverty, opulence, isolation and murder in the cycle of life and death in a Wiltshire village. Former locals, Billy Snook, Alice Kipling, William Beckford, Molly Peart and Shauna Snook, return to the village to relive a life-changing moment in their lives, and confront their own ghosts and human condition.

Some of the authors will be reading their own stories, some will be read by actors from TAG, interspersed with live music. We will also give the awards (kindly sponsored by the Alice Combes Newton Trust) and consolation prizes to the authors present. More info at www.tisburywritingcompetition.wordpress.com
