Alex Jennings leads critically acclaimed double-bill of Hymn and Cocktail Sticks in Alan Bennett’s Untold Stories

 

Untold Stories features two autobiographical recollections by Alan Bennett, Hymn & Cocktail Sticks, that together make up a funny and touching portrait of Alan Bennett, the life he’s led, and his relationship with his parents.

Hymn is an exquisite, beautifully written memoir of music in childhood, directed by Nadia Fall and with an evocative score by George Fenton, performed by a string quartet. Cocktail Sticks, directed by Nicholas Hytner, is Alan Bennett’s funny and tender reflection on his parents desire for a different life.

Olivier Award-winning actor Alex Jennings leads the cast as Alan Bennett in both pieces.
