The Lady in the Van
The Lady in the Van

THE Lady in the Van, Alan Bennett’s 1990 play, is being revived at Hull Truck Theatre.

It’s about a belligerent homeless woman who parked her van in the garden of Bennett’s London home and refused to leave for 15 years.

The play started as a short story, and went on to become a radio play as well as stage play, with Maggie Smith in the lead role.

The production opens tomorrow and runs to 7 May.
