Alan Bennett’s The Lady In The Van On Film – First Look

Alex Jennings and Maggie Smith in The Lady In The Van coming to cinemas in November 2015

We’re pleased to be bringing you this first look at the film adaptation of The Lady In The Van. Lady in the Van is adapted from the Alan Bennett play of the same name and is directed by Nicholas Hytner, who directed the original production at the Queen’s Theatre. Lady in the Van stars Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Frances de la Tour, Jim Broadbent and Gwen Taylor and arrives in cinemas in November 2015. The film tells the true story of the relationship between Alan Bennett and the singular Miss Shepherd, a woman of uncertain origins who ‘temporarily’ parked her van in Bennett’s London driveway and proceeded to live there for 15 years. We’re looking forward to this one.
