A video recommendation for you. This is such fine acting and story telling. It is a monologue, told over a period of months. The piece was written by Alan Bennett, from a series called “Talking Heads.” It is performed by Patricia Routledge—known best in America for the role of Hyacinth in “Keeping Up Appearances” on PBS.
If you have seen the film “Wit,” you cannot be blamed for wondering how much they may have borrowed from this script for that one. “Wit” is definitely worth watching, too, but today I suggest you make time for “A Woman of No Importance.”
