By Charlie David Page
5th June 2016

Maggie Smith breathes life into the erratic Miss Shepherd of uncertain origins whose wayward tendencies finds her "temporarily" parking her van in playwright Alan Bennett’s suburban London driveway. What begins as a begrudged favour becomes a poignant relationship that will change both their lives as Miss Shepherd stubbornly takes up residence on the street with her feisty attitude and smelly cordon of plastic bags.

Her cranky presence baffles neighbours, who are forced to adopt her in their lives and endure her quirks. From her irritable outbursts, to her loud fervent prayers, and flying down the street in her wheelchair with glee, Shepherd clutches to life as best she can, bringing you with her along the way.
