Cast announced for Victoria Wood’s ‘Loving Miss Hatto’

Posted Filed under

Loving Miss Hatto will tell the story of pianist Joyce Hatto, her relationship with her husband and the controversial recordings that made her famous late in life.

Wood commented: “Loving Miss Hatto is a screenplay inspired by the true story of classical pianist Joyce Hatto and her husband Barrie. It begins with their meeting in the grey shabby London of the early Fifties and ends in the 21st century in a cul-de-sac in Royston, Hertfordshire. This is a story of two young people with high hopes who, like most of us, get bashed in the face by life. It is, above all – a love story.”

Executive producer Andy Harries added: “This is an extraordinary tale that caught our eye many years ago. Victoria Wood has spent three years researching this fascinating story and has produced a beautifully realised and moving script that not only brings the story to life but sheds new light on her relationship with her husband.”

Loving Miss Hatto will be shot on location in Ireland.
