Meet Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Eileen Atkins, and Dame Joan Plowright—four iconic English actresses, famed for their incredible stage and screen careers, with countless shared experiences (and the damehoods to match). In Tea With the Dames, we spend a joyous hour-and-a-half with the longtime friends as they recount, with great wit and candor, their early days on the London stage, their loves and family lives—with Plowright’s longtime marriage to Laurence Olivier taking center stage—and the many challenges and indignities of old age. Sharp-tongued and overflowing with wisdom, Tea With the Dames is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that is more champagne than sleepy chamomile. Certainly, that’s the drink they all seem to prefer.
