A new musical telling the true journey of the eccentric Phyllis Pearsall, who got lost on the way to a party - and spent the next five years of her life walking the streets of London creating the A-Z.
The A-Z of Mrs P starts off in the 1930s and explores both the streets of London and the eccentric Mrs Pearsall, a Bohemian artist, as she builds her famous business, mapped against her own troubled family saga.
