Two monologues from The Complete Talking Heads.
Produced by arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
Alan Bennett’s award-winning series of solo pieces is a classic of contemporary drama, universally hailed for its combination of razor-sharp wit and deeply felt humanity. First produced for BBC television in 1988 to great critical acclaim, the Talking Heads monologues also appeared on the West End Stage in London in 1992 and 1998. In 2002, seven of the pieces were performed at the Tiffany Theater in Los Angeles for a highly praised brief engagement, and in 2003 a selection of the monologues premiered in New York at the Minetta Lane Theatre. These extraordinary portraits of ordinary people confirm Alan Bennett’s place as one of the most gifted, versatile, and important writers in the English Language.
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm. There is no performance Sunday June 17th.
Produced by Nikki L. Martin
Directed by Missy May and Nicelle Davis
Starring Rachel Jennings and Jan Jensen
$8 general / $6 students

Quartz Hill’s own theater company, Antelope Valley Thespians, has announced a call for scripts from local writers.
The group is offering a $300 “bounty” to the writer of the script selected, which is to be based on a theme relating to THE WEST.
A forum has been opened to field questions from playwrights and interested parties to provide help in crafting a play that will meet the guidelines and be produceable in the AVT black-box theater space.
For more information on the guidelines and selected themes for the competitive call for scripts, visit the AVT website listed on our sidebar.
From the AVT website:
AVT’s debut full-length production closed today after a very successful six-show run. We have been moved by, and are grateful for, the exuberant reaction from our fans and the support we have received from friends, family, and our local community. Quartz Hill, we are excited to be your very own, homegrown theatre company!
Quartz Hill’s one and only theater group is presenting “Crime and Punishment” this month. Offering six shows in their Quartz Hill location, the Antelope Valley Thespians are kicking off their 2010 season in serious style with a play based on the classic novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
Crime and Punishment, long considered a masterpiece of western literature, tells the story of the young scholar Roskolnikov who carries out a planned murder before he realizes what the moral and psychological consequences of his actions might be.
With a diverse cast of characters and intense moments of suspense, the story explores Roskolnikov’s many ups and downs as he walks a tightrope of doubt and guilt. Will he be caught, arrested, punished?
In this story, the crime is certain and it is the uncertainty of punishment that creates an atmosphere of tension and suspense pre-dating Hitchcock by a half-century.
The Quartz Hill theater group has selected a theatrical adaption of the famous Russian novel as the first of three plays on the calendar for the Antelope Valley Thespians’ 2010 season. The season also includes “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” and “The Interrogation of Nathan Hale”.
