A tale of sex, scandal and sensation set against the backdrop of the 1940s is coming to Bury St Edmunds.

Miss Nightingale - The Musical will be taking to the stage at the Theatre Royal from Wednesday, September 30 to Saturday, October 3 during its fourth and final UK tour.

Directed by Karen Simpson, the theatre’s own artistic director, the show promises to bring the glitz and glamour of showbiz in the 40s as well as presenting its more scandalous side.

Created by Matthew Bugg, a theatre composer and choreographer, Miss Nightingale has also been known as ‘the burlesque musical’.

It mingles the on-stage glamour and the off-stage affairs of wartime Britain, demonstrating some explosive secrets in the process.

Since its first tour in 2011, audiences across the UK have adored this feel-good tale of love, loss and hope, performed by a multi-talented cast who not only act, dance and sing but also play all the instruments live on stage.

On Thursday, October 1, there will be a chance for audience members to join the cast for a post-show chat.
