Directed by Chris Williams

In 1974, the homeless Miss Shepherd moved her broken down van into Alan Bennett’s garden. Deeply eccentric
and stubborn to her bones, Miss Shepherd was not an
easy tenant. And Bennett, despite inviting her in the first place, was a reluctant landlord. And yet she lived there
for fifteen years.

The play premiered in 1999, directed by Nicholas Hytner
and starring Dame Maggie Smith, who reprised her role
in the recent film adaptation.
