About this item

Alan Bennett ("The History Boys", "The Madness of King George") is one of Britain's most popular and prolific playwrights. Following his runaway success with "Beyond the Fringe" in the Sixties, he began writing for the stage, but soon found that his work transferred easily and effectively to the small screen. This collection, spanning over twenty years from 1972 to 1994, showcases Bennett's observant eye for the absurdities of modern life and his sharp ear for dialogue. The BAFTA-winning "An Englishman Abroad" was inspired by Coral Browne's real-life encounter with an eccentric Englishman in Moscow. None other than the notorious spy Guy Burgess (Alan Bates), he sends the actress on a rather counter-revolutionary mission. Also includes: "The Insurance Man" (with Daniel Day Lewis as Franz Kafka), "A Question of Attribution" (with Prunella Scales as Queen Elizabeth II and James Fox as Sir Anthony Blunt), "102 Boulevard Haussman" (with Alan Bates and Janet McTeer) plus early plays "A Day Out" and "Sunset Across the Bay" (directed by Stephan Frears) and "Our Winnie". Patricia Routledge ("Keeping Up Appearances") stars in "A Visit from Miss Prothero" and "A Woman of No Importance". Two film essays, "Dinner at Noon" and "Portrait or Bust", reveal Alan Bennett's unique onscreen presence.
