Mrs. Henderson Presents


Based on a true story, and set before and during World War II, a widow with too much money and time buys an old theatre and renovates it. She hires a producer to put on some shows, which were a success, until others started copying them. They then came up with a new twist... having naked ladies on stage. This move saved them, and paved the way for nudity on the British stage.
