Untold Stories

Alan Bennett's critically acclaimed Untold Stories transfers to the Duchess Theatre this March. The double bill features two autobiographical recollections by Bennett: Hymn, a touching memoir of music in his childhood, and Cocktail Sticks, which revisits some themes and conversations of Bennett's memoir. Written while Bennett believed he was dying of cancer, these works are tender, sad and funny. As described by The Guardian: "the resulting warmth, wit and humanity puts it among his finest works." Special deals for Untold Stories at the Duchess Theatre.

About Duchess Theatre

The Duchess Theatre is one of the smallest in The West End, which is not entirely a bad thing. The seating is almost on top of the stage, creating an intense engagement between audience and actors of the kind usually reserved for the fringe. More about Duchess Theatre
