When you’re old and still craving the limelight you once enjoyed, it’s hard to accept that the world has fallen head-over-heels for your son. So what do you do? If you are the indefatigable Madame Clara Novello Davies, you keep pursuing your impossible dreams. If you are her loving son, the legendary Ivor Novello, you do your best to keep her happy - and keep her in check.
With their relationship at (yet another) crisis point, in this funny and at times poignant drama, Clara sings Ivor’s best-loved songs and – for the first time - confronts the painful events that shaped her remarkable life.
