Maggie Smith stars as Miss Shepherd, ‘The Lady In The Van’, a colourfully complex character who “temporarily” parked in the driveway of Alan Bennett’s home – and stayed there for 15 years!
After inviting herself in to Bennett’s house to use the bathroom, she proved impossible to budge. Despite her prickly, irascible nature, the neighbourhood quickly warmed to her certain brand of charm, and she eventually became the essential heart and soul of the community.
Written by Alan Bennett, (‘The History Boys’), and based on his own life, the hilarious and heartwarming ‘The Lady In The Van’ stars Academy Award winner Maggie Smith (‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’) and Alex Jennings (‘The Queen’).
