Auditions Thursday 11 Oct 2018 at 8pm and Saturday 20 Oct 2018 at 3pm

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. Alan Bennett, despite inviting her in the first place, was a reluctant landlord. 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.
