Dame Maggie Smith to Appear in Conversation for Streaming Event

This April, none other than Dame Maggie Smith (Minerva McGonagall) will be appearing alongside actress Kathleen Turner in conversation with writer and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth to support the Royal Theatrical Fund, and tickets to the streaming event are available now.

Fane Productions has more information about the upcoming event, which will take place on April 8 at 18:30 (6:30 p.m.) GMT but will be available to view for a week beyond its initial broadcast for those unable to watch it at that time.

The event description notes that Smith and Turner met and befriended one another back in 2000 while they were appearing in shows in adjacent theaters in the West End, though the two actresses have never worked together.

This unique event, hosted by Gyles Brandreth, brings Kathleen and Maggie together on[-]screen for the first time. From either side of the Atlantic, the two iconic actresses will be sharing stories of their unusual childhoods and their remarkable careers on stage and screen. From The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie to The War of the Roses, from Friends to Harry Potter, expect laughter (and perhaps a few tears) along with stories you have never heard before.

With two Oscars, five Golden Globes and three Tonys between them, don’t miss the chance to spend an evening with Kathleen and Maggie as they compare notes and divulge secrets from two extraordinary careers.

According to the ticketing information available from Fane Productions, a ticket to view the stream can be purchased for £20.00.
