Plays by Alan Bennett

This is a collection of Alan Bennett plays. Some of them better known than others acted by the usual cast of players including Thora Hurd so lovers of Alan Bennett won't be disappointed.

But the really irritating thing about this Audible presentation, and the fault presumably lies with Audible, is that none of the plays are individually listed in the contents. So if you want to listen to Kafka's Dick for instance you have to trawl through over 20 "chapters" until you hit on the right one that announces after 30 sec of theme music that you are now listening to Kafka's Dick. Really irritating and if I had known before hand this was how the download was organised I would not have purchased it.

A joy to listen to

Alan Bennett is a National treasure and I hope he goes on writing plays and stories for ever. He has a real insight into what we humans are all about and conveys it thoughtfully.
The actors taking part in this audiobook played their parts extremely well and with clarity. Particularly touching was the author's homage to the late and much missed Thora Hird.
Listen to all the plays as they all have something different to offer. A real treat
