Entirely fictional. And completely true. Voila. An epic tale of care, crisis and the Eurovision Song Contest by the acclaimed creator of I, AmDram.
In 2021, HANNAH MAXWELL moved back to the home counties to care for her recently bereaved grandmother. But this show isn’t about that. It’s about France’s Eurovision star Barbara Pravi, who’s just lovely.
In-between cooking, cleaning and Countdown, Maxwell escapes into an intensifying fantasy of ballroom dances, heartfelt ballads, fluent French and definitely-not-creepy plots to engineer a meet-cute with a random foreign celebrity. It’s La La Land meets Mission Impossible meets Hannah’s nan.
