A new musical set in 1940s war-torn London opened at the King’s Head Theatre in January. Miss Nightingale tells the rags-to-riches tale of a nurse who becomes London’s biggest cabaret star.
Songwriter George is a Jewish refugee who works alongside a young nurse, Maggie Brown. Maggie wants to break into show business and make it big. But all seems hopeless until they meet the wealthy Frank Conner, who comes up with a plan to launch the scandalous Miss Nightingale. But as the Blitz gets worse, tensions of many kinds arise in this love story about injustice and prejudice.
Miss Nightingale the musical runs at the King’s Head Theatre in London until 19th February. For more information visit: www.missnightingale.co.uk
