“What happens when four legends of British stage and screen get together?” That’s what the new film Tea With The Dames asks… and answers. Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Eileen Atkins, and Joan Plowright are Dames, celebrated actors, and longtime friends who get together to talk about life, work and everything in between. This is a table we’d like to pull a chair up to!
“Tea with the Dames” is a unique celebration of the lives and careers of four of our most iconic actresses; Dame Eileen Atkins, Dame Judi Dench, Dame Joan Plowright and Dame Maggie Smith. All four have gone from being fledgling actresses in the 1950s to acting royalty. They’ve watched each other’s careers grow and bloom and have celebrated life’s ups and downs together “Tea with the Dames” invites you to spend time with these acting legends as they talk about their lives and their professional experiences across theatre, television and film.
