Alan Bennett is one of Britain's most successful and popular living writers. He is also one of the last survivors of a generation of rule-breakers and radicals that first found its voice with Beyond the Fringe in 1961. Since then, he has gone on to huge success with his plays ('Kafka's Dick', 'An Englishman Abroad'), films ('A Private Function', 'Prick Up Your Ears', 'The Madness Of King George'), monologues ('Talking Heads') and diaries ('Writing Home', 'The Lady In The Van').
In 'Backing Into The Limelight', Alex Games examines the life of this intriguing, private man and sheds new light on his work.
