Working class songbird Maggie Brown has moved to London in search of fame and fortune.

She auditions at every cabaret bar she can find with her song writer George, but nobody wants their act.

Miss Nightingale, by composer Matthew Bugg, comes to the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, from tonight until Saturday.

Featuring 20 original songs and set in war-torn London, the musical follows struggling performer Maggie.

Things aren’t much better for her boyfriend Tom and her brother Harry is missing in action.

But everything changes when Maggie and George are picked up by a wealthy nightclub owner, Sir Frank.

Directed by Peter Rowe, the production stars Ilan Goodman, West End regular Tomm Coles and British-born burlesque performer Amber Topaz.

Tickets: £10.50 to £19 from the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton, on (023) 8067 1771 or go to
