Eerily Superb
1 October 2002 | by (Evora, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Alan Bennett has done it again, but furthering his views on human loneliness, despair and plain resignation (amongst others). Patricia Routledge's character is yet again proof that she is an excellent tragedienne. Eileen Atkins handles what is possibly the most uncannily ironic of all six pieces. Julie Walters ventures in deep, dark territory here, and what to say of Thora Hird's almost unbearably moving rendering here? No actor should be left out, really. This series of monologues makes you wonder if television isn't the clever box after all, rather than the idiot one. Bravo!
