York House Centre, London Road, Stony Stratford, MK11 1JQ


The Play’s The Thing Theatre Company presents Talking Heads by Alan Bennett

A Lady Of Letters

Irene Ruddock is not afraid to speak, or rather write, her mind about society’s faults. She writes to her MP, the Queen, the police, the local crematorium and the chemist – in fact everyone she can to suggest how to remedy these ills. When she suspects a neighbouring couple of child abuse though things become very serious.

Soldiering On

Stoicism is seen as a particular strength of the British character and no-one is more stoical than Muriel who we meet just after husband Ralph’s funeral. She’s part of the posh “country set” and Ralph has left her a very rich widow, but there’s a liquidity problem according to son Giles and Ralph was apparently not all he seemed either.

Don’t miss these two great monologues performed at York House on 28th and 29th June 7.30pm. Tickets £12.00 and £10.00 (concs) available from (FRIDAY) or (SATURDAY)

This is a great event which also supports York House’s campaign to raise funds for “Save the Stables” – an essential building project to rescue a significant part of the 160-year-old building and bring it back into full community use.

Of course, there will be a York House bar offering real ale, cider, lager, wine and soft drinks
