    National Theatre Live in HD, People by Alan Bennett

     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. Sell its valuable contents to a shadowy group of complacent, wealthy men? Donate it to the National Trust and subject its history to unrelenting scrutiny? Turn it into an adult film set? Celebrated playwright Alan Bennett (Madness of King George, The History of Boys), through satirical social commentary, offers up “classic Bennett comedy with a Downtown tinge” (Daily Express).

    ‘Wonderfully funny... a grand evening. Dorothy is Frances de la Tour, in the best part Alan Bennett has written for her.’
    - The Times

    ‘Outrageously funny and provocative.'

    Town Hall Annex, 26 Broadway
    Coming from the Route 128 traffic lights, follow Route 127 into town, where the road curves left, go straight ahead onto Broadway.

This small lot allows for free parking on evenings and weekends. Distance to Performance Center: 120 yd.

    Finally, use of unmetered spaces is encouraged. If possible, Rockport Music asks that you consider avoiding metered parking during the day (evening concerts are fine), as merchants and restaurants depend on these spaces for their patrons.
