Following a sell-out run at the National Theatre, Alan Bennett’s acclaimed new comedy People begins its UK tour in Birmingham.

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 Dorothy to do? Her archdeacon sister wants to hand the estate to the care of the National Trust, but Dorothy favours a more creative solution. People reunites Alan Bennett with director Nicholas Hytner, following their collaborations on the celebrated The History Boys and The Habit Of Art.
