Hymn & Cocktail Sticks

Hymn & Cocktail Sticks: By Alan Bennett
LONDON  •  Lyttelton Theatre  •  Ongoing

Cocktail Sticks is a new short play that revisits some of the themes and conversations of Alan Bennett’s memoir A Life Like Other People’s.

A son talks to his dead father as his mother yearns for a different life. It’s funny, tender and sad.

Nicholas Hytner directs Alex Jennings as Alan Bennett. He is joined by Derek Hutchinson, Gabrielle Lloyd, Maggie McCarthy and Jeff Rawle, with music performed by Rachel Elliott and Chris Fish.

The pinnacle of my social life is a scrutty bit of lettuce and tomato and some tinned salmon. Mind you, I read in Ideal Home that if you mix tinned salmon with this soft cheese you can make it into one of those moussy things. Shove a bit of lemon on it and it looks really classy.                                             - Alan Bennett
