A new British musical, The A-Z of Mrs P, to be seen at the Southwark Playhouse in February 2014, is looking for people to help fund its cast recording and has turned to crowdfunding site IndieGoGo in its bid to make the recording a reality.
In 1936, Phyllis Pearsall makes the life-changing decision to leave her husband in Venice and follow a new path to find her way in London.
She then receives a telegram from her father, map publisher Alexander Gross….
And here begins the story of how an eccentric Bohemian artist put down her paints and picked up the drawing board to follow in her beloved and impossible father’s footsteps to map an entire city!
The A-Z of Mrs P is a brand new musical fable, written by author/playwright Diane Samuels and composer/singer Gwyneth Herbert, based on Phyllis Pearsall’s autobiographies. The show opens in the very same borough in which she was made a celebrated resident, at Southwark Playhouse on 21st February 2014.
A cast album means that the show will have a life beyond the initial production. This is an original British musical with a unique soundscape, written by an all-female creative team – all these things are too rare in British Musical Theatre! Help us capture this landmark show with a world class company.
In addition, the producers are hoping to get some money to go towards costumes and special lighting effects to enhance the production.
