Dame Maggie Smith will take to the Orange Tree stage in our new series of talks with our most distinguished actors about people they’ve worked with, admired and learned from. A celebration of British theatre’s history and its especially collaborative nature, it will be an unrivalled opportunity to see great artists talk up-close in the Orange Tree’s unique in-the-round space. It follows the first sold out Under the Orange Tree talk with Dame Judi Dench in June. OT Ambassador Gyles Brandreth returns to host.
Funds from tickets raised by the Under the Orange Tree series will go to support the Theatre’s work; from re-discovered plays, to developing new work, to introducing primary school children to Shakespeare for the first time, all aspects of the Orange Tree’s work are created with quality, variety and intimacy at their heart.
Said Gyles Brandreth: “I have admired Maggie Smith since I first saw her at the National Theatre at the Old Vic in the early 1960s. Her career has been extraordinary, her talent is unique. She has worked with all my heroes, from Laurence Olivier to Kenneth Williams. I’m so excited to be talking with her in the intimate setting of the Orange Tree Theatre. To share a stage with Dame Maggie has to be any theatre-lover’s dream!”
Tickets are £100 and available online only* from midday Tuesday 5 September.
