The Lady in the Van tells the true story of the relationship between the playwright Alan Bennett and 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. Maggie Smith returns as the singular Miss Mary Shepherd, 16 years after she first played the part on stage.
