'Office Suite' by Alan Bennett - Presented by Perranporth Players
Perranporth Memorial Hall, Wheal Leisure, Perranporth, TR6 0EY
Date: Friday 27th March 2020
Alan Bennett is one of England's finest comedy writers, perhaps best known for "The Madness of King George" and "The History Boys".
His perceptive and witty monologues, collectively known as "Talking Heads" have been performed by some of the countries finest actors. "Office Suite" consists of two highly entertaining One-Act Plays, each with beautifully written characters.
In "A Visit from Miss Prothero", a secretary upsets the contented retirement of her former boss with the latest office gossip.
In "Green Forms", clerk Doreen lives in envy of her co-worker Doris’s superior grade, and in fear of the advent of new computer systems.
Of the character of Miss Prothero, The Times said: ‘There’s hardly a line that doesn’t make you gulp at the nerve of this prissy, narrow, grudging, fatalistic, bossy, appallingly self-confident woman.’
And The Telegraph said of the plays: ‘Bennett’s dialogue has a lethal sharpness and precision that makes him the Oscar Wilde of northern gentility'
