The Lady in the Van

By Alan Bennett


Our first play of the 2018/9 season is the brilliant The Lady in the Van by Alan Bennett. The Lady in the Van tells the (mostly) true story of Alan Bennett's strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her temporarily to park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home. She stayed there for 15 years.
