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. Directed by Roger Michell (My Cousin Rachel, Notting Hill), the film also includes a range of astonishing archive material. Candid, funny, caustic, irreverent, poignant and utterly engrossing, this unmissable release is proof that there is truly nothing like a Dame.

Together, they’re 342 years old.

They’re in their seventh decade of cutting-edge, epoch-defining performances on stage and on


Funny, smart, sharp, competitive, tearful, hilarious, savage, clever, caustic, cool, gorgeous, poignant,

irreverent, iconic, old …

… and unbelievably young.

Special friends, special women and special Dames: and in this special film a once-in-a-lifetime chance

to hang out with them all, at the same table, at the same time, and enjoy sparkling and unguarded

conversation spliced with a raft of astonishing archive.
