A wonderful and gifted actress.

Carole Heath Wallington SurreyApr 1, 2009

I first saw Joan Plowright in George Bernard Shaw`s play St Joan in the 1960`s at London`s Old Vic theatre, she was amazing her performance as St Joan I can still remember to this day. Her stage presence was that of a really good actor. She has gonr on to make her mark in both the theatre and films in recent years. I am also a fan of her late husband Laurence Olivier he introduced me to Shakespeare through his brilliant film of Richard 111.
