Talking Heads: just four performances left

‘Susan’s story is exquisite’, says Narrell Murdoch, who plays the character in Bay Theatre Players’ production of ‘Talking Heads’ at the Bay Playhouse this weekend.

Narrell, well known to Playhouse audiences from such previous productions as ‘Annie’, and ‘Minefields and Miniskirts’, says that Susan’s story, ‘Bed Among the Lentils’, ‘is beautifully written. It has humour, it is elegant and seductive and I feel very fortunate that I am able to play the role’.

Narrell’s talents have been recognized beyond Batemans Bay in the Canberra Area Theatre (CAT) awards where she has been nominated for best supporting actress on three occasions.

‘But’, says, Narrell, ‘playing Susan, the wife of the vicar, has provided me with new challenges as an actress. To tell her story with poise, grace, humour and sensitivity has been both a rewarding and difficult path’.

The ‘Talking Heads’ series of one-act plays was written by Alan Bennett, author of many well-known works including ‘Lady in the Van’, ‘The History Boys’ and ‘The Madness of George III’. They were first produced for BBC television in the 1980s.

There are only four shows left - evening shows at 7.30 pm, tomorrow, Friday, 27 July and Saturday, 28 July; and 2 pm matinees on Saturday, 28 July and Sunday, 29 July - so don’t miss out!

You can book your seats on-line, any time, via the link on or directly from the theatre’s ticket agent at

Tickets will also be available on Saturday morning at BTP’s Box Office in the Bay Playhouse theatre foyer at 33 Gregory Street, Batemans Bay.
