Judi Dench to share West End stories in new conversation series
The acclaimed actress will be in conversation with Gyles Brandreth.
The seven-time Olivier Award-winning actress Judi Dench will return to the West End this summer. Dench will speak about her career in a series of conversations at the Gielgud Theatre on three consecutive Sundays: 19 June, 26 June and 3 July.
The I Remember It Well conversation series will see Dench look back at 60 years of performances and tell unheard stories. Dench will be in conversation with Gyles Brandreth for all three events. The upcoming conversations mark Dench's first West End appearance since 2015, when she starred in The Winter's Tale at the Garrick Theatre.
Dench made her professional theatre debut as part of the Old Vic Company in 1957. Her seven Olivier Award wins for productions including A Little Night Music and Absolute Hell means that Dench currently holds the record for the most competitive Olivier Award wins by an actress. Recently, Dench's theatre credits include The Vote at the Donmar Warehouse and Peter and Alice at the Noel Coward Theatre.
Her notable film credits include M in the James Bond films, a role that she has played on nine separate films. Recent film credits include Belfast, Blithe Spirit and Cats.
