New Year, New Fact!

Fact#8 of the great 40 facts:

There is a rumour that the old dressing rooms had no windows so Judi Dench and her fellow cast members painted one onto the walls.

And that rumour is true!  Judi Dench has performed in two productions at the Young Vic. She played Lady Macbeth in Macbeth back in 1976 and Bessie Burgess in The Plough and the Stars in 1991.

One thought on “New Year, New Fact!

  1. Although Judy Dench did perform at the Young Vic, neither she or the cast of Plough and the Stars painted the window. All dressing rooms had windows except the green room. I myself painted the window on the wall when Sex Please We’re Italian was on and the lovely Helen Mirren provided the curtains which she had made herself.
