Our Winnie

Alan Bennett's drama revolves around Winnie, a woman with learning difficulties who lives with her elderly mother Cora and Aunt Ida. While visiting the cemetery where Winnie's father is buried they meet two art students, one of whom, Liz, asks if she can take a photograph of the three women. She takes it while they are not prepared, making them look ridiculous. Cora is angry, so Liz takes another of them properly posed. But she enters the first photograph for a competition, where it wins a prize.
