The Lady in the Van
It’s always exciting when an icon returns to the stage. Melbourne Theatre Company’s The Lady in The Van is the perfect opportunity to see stage and screen actor Miriam Margolyes treading the boards at Arts Centre Melbourne.
Margolyes will bring to life the mostly true story of the idiosyncratic Miss Mary Shepherd, the woman who parked her van on playwright Alan Bennett’s property and became his unlikely tenant for 15 years. The Lady in The Van is based on Bennett’s best-selling book of the same title, which has also been adapted for film (with Maggie Smith in the lead role), and was then reimagined for the stage on London’s West End in a smashingly successful production. Due to popular demand, the season has been extended until March 9.
