This new musical, directed by Daniel Evans and starring Clare Burt (below left) and Joanna Riding (below right), captures the glowing humanity of the novella by Paul Gallico on which it is based. Ada Harris spends her days dusting, darning, polishing and scrubbing. But her first glimpse of a ravishing Christian Dior dress sets her off on a journey that will change her life forever… From the cobbled streets of post-war London to the shimmering avenues of Paris, Ada transforms the lives of everyone she meets along the way; but can she let go of the past and finally allow her own life to blossom?
