Soup Troupe and The Really Small Theatre Company proudly present a stage reading of
A play by Alan Bennett
Alan Bennett first chronicled his encounter with Miss Shepherd in an article, published in diary form in 1989, after her death. A prolific and successful writer and raconteur, with his Yorkshire roots, liberal views and single status, Bennett was beguiled into allowing this eccentric, educated lady of indeterminate age and background to park and live in her beaten-up old van, temporarily, first outside his house in Camden, and then in his garden. He bade her farewell 15 years later at her funeral. It seems that she had the last laugh!
We hope you enjoy this stage reading of the play Alan Bennett went on to write. Its most recent reincarnation was in 2015, as a film starring, of course, the redoubtable Dame Maggie Smith.

Patronage brings with it a number of benefits, primarily generous discounts to all of our shows.

'THE LOVER' by Harold Pinter
Featuring Mira Berglund-Fitzpatrick & Christian Jull.
Directed by Joan Nordlund.
Sarah dutifully waves her husband Richard off to work every morning and welcomes him home at six in the evening. Meanwhile she openly entertains her lover in the afternoon in the knowledge that Richard is also otherwise engaged. There are no secrets in this apparently 'beautifully balanced' marriage!
'THE LOVER' is a one act play just over 1 hour in length. As such, there is no interval. However, we will be serving complimentary refreshments before the show begins.
This is a full stage production.
