High-Definition Broadcasts from National Theatre, London. Presented in partnership with the Michigan Theater.
The impoverished, aristocrat Dorothy Stacpoole needs to decide what to do with her decaying, stately home: auction it off, turn it over to the National Trust and open it to visitors, or sell it to a dubious commercial entity that may use it as a location for porn films. Award-winning writer Alan Bennett is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner and Olivier Award-winning actress Frances de la Tour, with whom he worked on The History Boys and The Habit of Art.
