Whatever else "Lettice and Lovage" may or may not be, the 1987 Peter Shaffer play is a great gift for two actresses. Shaffer wrote the play for his friend Maggie Smith, who complained of the lack of roles for women of a certain age. Both Smith and her co-star Margaret Tyzack won Tony Awards when the play came to Broadway in 1990. Whoopi Goldberg wanted to do the movie, which was never made.
