The Millionairess / Talking Heads: Bed Among the Lentils

1972 NR

Acclaimed actress and British institution Maggie Smith headlines this double bill: first, as the headstrong heiress Epifania in George Bernard Shaw's brilliant farce, then, as the acerbic alcoholic Susan in Alan Bennett's memorable monologue. Directed by William Slater, The Millionairess also stars Tom Baker and Charles Gray, while "A Bed Among the Lentils" sees playwright Bennett assuming directorial duties as well.
