TALKING HEADS by ALAN BENNETT

 March 17th -21st, 2021
CC Amstel Theater

 
Perfectly crafted, hilarious yet disturbing and moving; these one act plays
just completed a star-studded run in London’s West End. This is a unique opportunity to see two of them live in Amsterdam. Talking Heads was originally written for the BBC and was filmed by them for a second time in June 2020.  (For synopses -  see below.)


 The CC Amstel is Amsterdam's state of the art theatre that opened in 2018. With a very large stage and luxurious auditorium, it offers our audience an unmatchable theatre experience. Played in the round, there are 7 generously socially-distanced performances including matinees on Saturday & Sunday. Tickets €25. Friday/Saturday Evening and Sunday Matinee €30. (Excluding booking fee).
