About A Chip in the Sugar
"I didn't say anything..." This is the phrase most often uttered by Graham, a middle-aged bachelor, in this acute study of a lonely and repressed life from Alan Bennett's acclaimed Talking Heads
Emotionally retarded and chronically dependent on his mother, with whom he lives, Graham finds life difficult enough at the best of times. When Mother meets an old flame and seems set to marry him, however, Graham's old insecurities rear their ugly heads again. Fate, eventually, rescues Graham and he resumes his normal life of banal muddle under his mother's amnesiac tyranny.
The monologue represents Graham's obsessive outpourings, which are simultaneously touching, amusing and disturbing.
