    This event is an HD broadcast, not a performance onstage. Impoverished aristocrat Dorothy Stacpole is faced with the dilemma of what to do with her decaying stately ancestral home, with no ideal solution in sight.

Dorothy is Frances de la Tour, in the best part Alan Bennett has written for her.’ - The Times ‘Outrageously funny and provocative.' - Independent
