First Aired: October 31, 2004

Eileen Atkins plays a dour antique dealer who gets her fingers burned in “Talking Heads: The Hand of God,” a dark monologue by Alan Bennett. Atkins plays Celia, who suspects the worst in everyone, and knows---just knows---what they're up to. Then a young man walks into her shop and says he's interested in a refectory table that she has been trying to unload. Following “The Hand of God” is another monologue, in which Bennett recalls his childhood.
