Four solo pieces for four outstanding performers, 1 April 2002
Author: jctebo from Oregon

Alan Bennett's writing shows us once again that there is something the English have about their language that only a very few American writers sense. I suppose its kind of like those English lawns: its only dirt and a bit of grass seed but you have to mow it for 600 years before you have it.
