National Theatre (Lyttelton Theatre), London, SE1 9PX
  • "A sale? Why not? Release all your wonderful treasures onto the open market and they are there for everyone to enjoy. It’s a kind of emancipation, a setting them free to range the world… a saleroom here, an exhibition there; art, Lady Stacpoole, is a rover."

    People spoil things; there are so many of them and the last thing one wants is them traipsing through one’s house. But with the park, a jungle, and a bath on the billiard table, what is one to do? Dorothy Stacpoole, once a successful fashion model but now sporting a moth-eaten fur-coat and plimsolls, wonders if an attic sale could be a solution to saving the decaying stately home of the impoverished aristocrat.

    Frances de la Tour takes the part of Dorothy in her third new play by Alan Bennett at the National following The History Boys and The Habit of Art. She is joined by Selina Cadell and Linda Bassett.
