In November 2009, actress and playwright Lynn Redgrave debuted her solo play Nightingale
, inspired by her famous family. Sister Vanessa and late niece Natasha Richardson
are perhaps the most well-known members of her clan, but it was her maternal grandmother, Beatrice, who moved her to write this play. Before she passed away from breast cancer in May 2010, Lynn Redgrave talked about the genesis of Nightingale
and about what she loves about storytelling.
