If you could die tomorrow, wouldn’t you live today as if it were your last?
London, 1942. A smoky, underground cabaret club opens in the heart of the war-torn city. A saucy new singer is thrust into the spotlight. Two men struggle to bring their love out of the shadows.
A dangerous world where aristocrats slum it with black market spivs, songwriters take to the streets, and showgirls fight to change the world. When secrets are revealed and lies exposed, 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, satire, and spunky spirit of the Forties sensationally to life.
