Dame Judi Dench took to the Orange Tree stage for the first time in 2017 for the OT’s inaugural Under the Orange Tree: a series of talks with our most distinguished actors about people they’ve worked with, admired and learned from.

A celebration of British theatre’s history and its especially collaborative nature, Under the Orange Tree offers an unrivalled opportunity to see great artists talk up-close in the Orange Tree’s unique in the round space, in conversation with OT Ambassador Gyles Brandreth. Subsequent Under the Orange Tree guests have been Michael Billington, Sir Derek Jacobi, Dame Maggie Smith, David Suchet, Dame June Whitfield and Dame Penelope Wilton.
