Office Suite

Alan Bennett’s Office Suite consists of two highly entertaining one-act plays, each with beautifully written characters.

In A Visit from Miss Prothero, a secretary upsets the contented retirement of her former boss with the latest office gossip. In Green Forms, filing clerk Doreen lives in envy of her co-worker’s superior grade and in fear of the advent of new computer systems.

Of the character of Miss Prothero, The Times said: ‘There’s hardly a line that doesn’t make you gulp at the nerve of this prissy, narrow, grudging, fatalistic, bossy, appallingly self-confident woman.’

And The Telegraph said of the plays: ‘Bennett’s dialogue has a lethal sharpness and precision that makes him the Oscar Wilde of northern gentility.’
