The government’s new national restrictions mean that we have to close the theatre from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December.

During April and May, while the Bridge Theatre was closed, we worked with the BBC to produce Alan Bennett’s landmark Talking Heads monologues. They were broadcast on BBC1 in June. Now, eight of them come to the stage in a series of unique double bills, all of them with the same leading actors whose performances were universally acclaimed on television. Each of the short plays that make up Talking Heads is a perfectly distilled masterpiece, sometimes disturbing, often hilarious and always profoundly humane.

For these performances at The Bridge, Alan Bennett has generously waived his royalty.
