No-nonsense businessman Alan is filthy rich – and he’s made no apologies about stepping over the little people to get there. His two sons Ian and Ben, and their wives Sue and Laura, have all come together to celebrate Alan’s 70th birthday. But of course, things are never as simple as they seem. For left-leaning Laura though, it’s tricky. Her father recently committed suicide after following Alan’s business advice and losing everything, leaving her mother in a miserable rental with a bung leg.

VDL Awards Entry: 2022

Author: Alan Bennett

Director: Nick Opolski

Genre: Drama

Agent: Origin Theatrical Pty Ltd

Synopsis

This is the true story of the relationship between writer, Alan Bennett, and the singular Miss Mary Shepherd, an elderly woman of uncertain origins, who takes up residence in a London street where many famous names live. She is a well-known ‘character’ around Camden Town, sometimes mocked and persecuted by passers-by as she lives in a decrepit, hand-painted yellow van crammed with old shopping bags and bits of carpet. After systematically outstaying her welcome outside every other house in the street, Miss Shepherd ‘temporarily’ parks in Bennett’s driveway and proceeds to live there for 15 years. Their unique story is funny, poignant and life-affirming. The Lady in the Van is her story as seen through Alan Bennett’s eyes.
