Julie Walters and Victoria Wood star in this musical version of the classic spoof soap. Read More >


Victoria Wood’s magnificently bad soap opera arrives in the West End with a star-studded cast and crew.

The cast of the axed TV soap, down on their luck and looking for work, have found themselves performing in an experimental opera taking a bleak look at modern Britain. But Mrs Overall won’t let the opera drag her down and starts trying to slip a few more tuneful ditties into the proceedings. As events unravel fate gives her the chance to fulfil her dream of taking a musical based on Acorn Antiques to the West End, with lots of lovely singing and dancing, and a very prominent part for her.
