1942. A smoky, underground cabaret club opens in war-torn London. A saucy new singer is thrust into the spotlight. Two men struggle to love out of the shadows. A world in turmoil where aristocrats slum it with black market spivs, songwriters take to the streets, and showgirls fight to change the world. When secrets are revealed, the only resistance is to stand up and be counted. A deeply touching and raucously funny tale of prejudice, passion and debauchery during the dark days of World War Two. Miss Nightingale brings the scandals, the satire, and the spunky spirit of the Forties sensationally to life. Voted one of the Guardian’s Top 50 Shows of 2016, after five triumphant UK tours you can finally enjoy the hit show in London at The Vaults. As the so-called Free World seems to be turning its back on homosexuality, the hilarious and heart-warming Miss Nightingale is a timely reminder of the progress we’ve made but the steps we have still to travel. You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll cheer for more!
