The Lady in the Van
by Alan Bennett
Performed: March 2008
In 1974, Alan Bennett encountered Miss Mary Shepherd, an elderly eccentric living in a van in the street near his home. He eventually allowed her to park her van in his garden, the idea being that she would stay three months - but those three months extended to fifteen years. Alan Bennett’s funny and moving dramatisation of his memoir with Miss Shepherd opens LTC’s 2008 season.
