People by Alan Bennett
People by Alan Bennett is a very funny, insightful and wittily pointed drama about an aristocrat who finds herself living in poverty in a mouldering pile which the National Trust wants to renovate and run.
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 wonders if an attic sale could be a solution. As with Alan Bennett’s previous two plays, The History Boys and The Habit of Art, People will open in the Lyttelton Theatre in a production directed by the National’s artistic director Nicholas Hytner.
