Like so much of Alan Bennett’s work, this is based on a true story. And not one, but two Alan Bennetts appear in it.
‘An eccentric, grump, elderly lady parked her tatty old camper-van in the street where he lives, much to the consternation of the neighbours. Wishing to be helpful, he allowed her to park the car on his drive, temporarily, to move it off the street. The neighbours were not exactly delighted that the eyesore and the rather eccentric lady were still around. And she stayed around for quite a long time’.
