Suddenly they are picked up by wealthy aristocrat Sir Frank.

He needs a new act for his London nightclub and transforms Maggie into Miss Nightingale. Her outrageous costumes, saucy cabaret songs and racy love life create a scandalous new West End star.

Everything changes when George and Sir Frank fall secretly in love - but bootleg booze, blackmail and bombshells are a dangerous cocktail. And sometimes the truth proves even more explosive than The Blitz.

Miss Nightingale – the Musical is performed by a talented cast who not only act, dance and sing but also play all the instruments live onstage.

Matthew Bugg’s critically acclaimed songs, from hilarious tongue-in-cheek numbers to tender ballads, wonderfully capture the glorious spirit of the 1940s.

The title role of Maggie/Miss Nightingale is played by Clara Darcy whose television credits include Eric & Ernie (BBC - nominated for BAFTA), Emmerdale, The Royal (ITV) and Nightmare in Suburbia (Sky).
