about Tight Fit Theatre in the Community
Bed among the Lentils
Bed among the Lentils
Susan, an alcoholic, nervous vicar's wife, distracts herself from her ambitious, insensitive husband and his doting parishioners by conducting an affair with a nearby grocer, Ramesh Ramesh, discovering something about herself and God in the process.

Her Big Chance
Her Big Chance
Lesley is an aspiring actress, who, after a series of unpromising extra roles on television programmes such as Crossroads, finds what she believes to be her big break as the adventurous Travis in a new film for the West German market. It is not clear to what extent Lesley understands that she is appearing in a pornographic film.

Cream Cracker under the Setee
Cream Cracker under the Settee
Doris is a tidy woman - and when she suffers a fall after trying to clear up after her considerably less thorough home help, Zulema, she wonders whether her tidying was responsible for her husband's early death and whether the only place left for her in society is a care home which she distrusts. Resisting this with all her being, she decides she'd rather die by her own means than within their care.

The Bucks Free Press said of Tight Fit Theatre's Talking Heads in 1999 :
“a close to perfect blend of comedy and drama”.

Please note: all three monologues will be performed each evening with two short intervals. The order of the Talking Heads listed here and elsewhere does not necessarily refflect the order in which they will be performed on any particular evening.
