“Best Foot Forward…”
The A – Z of Mrs P, a brand new musical written by Gwyneth Herbert and author-playwright Diane Samuels (based on Phyllis Pearsall’s autobiographies), opens at Southwark Playhouse from 21st February 2014. For anyone who has ever searched to find their way, here is a re-telling of the myth and even more remarkable reality behind the handy, all-purpose, pocket-sized A-Z Street Guide of 23,000 streets (with house numbers).
“I’d never seen a musical before I started this crazy journey 5 years ago,” confesses Gwyneth. “Thing was, I loved stories, I loved music, I loved the theatre. And now, after working intensively and intimately alongside Diane exploring Mrs P’s own inspiring journey, I find myself in love with this huge beast of an art-form: its limitless possibilities for creative invention, the way you can plant one thought or feeling and make it shudder through the whole piece, music and words and action and visual art all weaving together. For me, I have found it’s the most multi-dimensional and exciting way to tell a magical story.”
