Brit Pack

Our city’s one of just a handful to host National Theatre Live, a film series of current hot tickets from the London stage institution. Next up is People, a new play from Alan Bennett (The Madness of King George). How English is this ish? Dorothy, an aging noblewoman (because that’s still a thing), faces challenges maintaining her stately home (trust us, you don’t have one). She considers letting the National Trust (the what, now?) take it over as a kind of highbrow tourist attraction, but though Dorothy is acquainted with the limey concept, it sounds weird even to her. So she lets some people pay her to make porn in the house instead. And other stuff happens.
