From the organizer

Word for Word presents SMUT: An Unseemly Story (The Greening of Mrs. Donaldson) by Alan Bennett. Alan Bennett is one of England’s finest and wittiest writers who explores the uncomfortable and tragicomic gap between people’s public appearance and their private desires in this tender and surprising story. In The Greening of Mrs. Donaldson, a recently bereaved widow finds ways to supplement her income by performing as a patient for medical students, and renting out her spare room. Mrs. Donaldson soon discovers that she rather enjoys role-play at the hospital, and the irregular and startling entertainment provided by her tenants. Bennett is known for authoring a range of plays and screenplays including the plays: The History Boys (Tony 2006), Kafka's Dick, The Wind in The Willows,The Madness of George III and for film: The Lady inThe Van, A Private Function, Prick Up Your Ears, and The Madness of King George
