The story of one woman who makes an extraordinary difference

For Ada Harris, day-to-day life is spent cleaning houses. But when she happens upon something that takes her breath away, she sets off on a journey that will change her life...

From the cobbled streets of post-war London to the magical avenues of Paris and beyond, Ada transforms the lives of everyone she meets along the way, but can she let go of her past and finally let her own life blossom?

With a cast including Clare Burt (This Is My Family), Anna-Jane Casey (Company, Mack and Mabel) and Louis Maskell (My Fair Lady,West Side Story), accompanied by a live orchestra, Daniel Evans
(Show Boat, This Is My Family, My Fair Lady) will direct this uplifting
new musical that celebrates the extraordinary power of friendship,
love and one incredible woman.
