The Quality of Dirty Laundry

Hop over to the BBC iPlayer here and listen to the wondrous Alan Bennett introducing his Talking Heads monologues.

More than an introduction, he discusses the process of writing them, how monologues differ from playwriting, something about creating characters - and writers finding themselves with dirty underwear in their suitcases.

Quality stuff - and then you can listen to the Talking Heads themselves and marvel at how he generates scenes with conflict with just a single voice.

We are not worthy.

What's on the turntable? "Deckard & Roy's Duel" by Vangelis from "Bladerunner Trilogy" Disc 2
