Acclaimed British actress of stage, screen and television, Julie Walters, demonstrates her diverse talents in this entertainment special in which she plays many different characters - from a six-year-old tap dancing schoolgirl to a sexy 70-year-old. Leading writers Alan Bennett, Alan Bleasdale, Victoria Wood and Willy Russell pay tribute to the versatile Walters by applying their razor-sharp wit to a highly entertaining collection of comic sketches, monologues and songs.
Bleasdale's offering is based on Michael Murray's Irish mother, whom Julie played in C4's G.B.H. Alan Bennett has created a character called 'Criminal's Wife' and Willy Russell who wrote 'Educating Rita' in which Julie starred both on stage and in the film, pops up to partner her in a trade against the arts, and other characters include Mary Brazil and Mrs Overall of 'Acorn Antiques' come from the pen of Victoria Wood.
