Alan Bennett introduces three monologues starring Thora Hird, including her final performance.

Until the time of her death in 2003, much-loved actress Thora Hird worked regularly with the playwright Alan Bennett. Now, in a specially written introduction and postscript, Bennett recalls his work and friendship with Thora, and introduces three examples of their collaboration.

'The Last of the Sun' - Dolly's remaining days in an old people's home are enlivened by a seemingly respectable man. Recorded in 2002, Thora Hird's last ever performance, in a part written especially for her, is moving and memorable.

'A Cream Cracker Under the Settee' - Doris has taken a fall at home and until someone comes to rescue her, she's left immobile and in reflective mood. This monologue features one of Thora's best-remembered performances.

'Waiting for the Telegram' - Remembering how she lost her first young man, Violet does not see how close she is to losing her second. Thora Hird won a BAFTA for Best Actress for her performance in this monologue.
