Britain’s most celebrated comic playwright, Alan Bennett (The History Boys, Habit of Art), debuts his hilarious new play at the National Theatre. Nicholas Hytner (The History Boys, Habit of Art, One Man, Two Guvnors) directs a cast including Tony and Olivier Award-winner Frances de la Tour (The History Boys, Habit of Art).

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 (Frances de la Tour) wonders if an attic sale could be a solution.

People also stars Linda Bassett (Calendar Girls, The Hours), Selina Cadell (Doc Martin), Nicholas le Prevost (Cranford), and Peter Egan (Death at a Funeral).

The National Theater of London, one of the world's leading theater producers of Shakespeare, international classic drama and contemporary playwrights, is offering an exciting new initiative - broadcasting live performances of plays in high definition onto cinema screens worldwide. The Strand is one of 100 venues world wide to broadcast the new HD series in this exciting international partnership. The broadcasts will also feature behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with artists.
