Farnworth Little Theatre produces Talking Heads by Alan Bennett.

Bed Among the Lentils will be performed by Janet Leather, who will play Susan, a vicar’s wife who tries to find meaning in life while dealing with her insensitive husband.

Carole Taylor will play Muriel in Soldiering On, a strong woman who stoically faces life’s challenges.

Andrew Gradwell will be playing Graham in A Chip in the Sugar, dealing with his complicated relationship with his mother.

Finally, Caroline Weekes will play Irene in A Lady of Letters, a single woman who finds the power of the pen to be mightier than the sword.
