Following The History Boys, 9 years later, Nicholas Hytner has returned to the screen to direct the 1999 play 'The Lady in the Van', which originally starred Maggie Smith in the title role. Here she returns to the role again, this time 15 years later.
"The Lady in the Van tells the true story of Alan Bennett's strained friendship with Miss Mary Shepherd, an eccentric homeless woman whom Bennett befriended in the 1970s before allowing her to temporarily park her Bedford van in the driveway of his Camden home. She stayed there for 15 years."
