60 years ago, seismic changes ripped through the cultural establishment and together with music and fashion, British theatre underwent an explosion of creativity and talent, the impact of which was felt around the world and is still tangible today. It was a new Renaissance. Playing a central role and pivotal to these creative and social shifts were a group of young actresses including Joan Plowright, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Eileen Atkins. All have received Damehoods in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the acting profession.

TEA WITH THE DAMES invites you to spend time with these theatrical icons off screen as they talk about their lives now and then: their experience in theatre, TV and cinema and the memories that they have from when they were bright young things right up to the present day – now looking back with the wisdom of the years.
