Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton in That Day We Sang new TV musical comedy by Victoria Wood

 Updated 5th December: Imelda Staunton and Michael Ball were a tour de force in Sweeney Todd,  they are now  starring together in a new BBC TV romantic comedy called Tubby and Enid (now called That Day We Sang)which is written and directed by Victoria Wood.

 The 90 minute drama is to be shown on BBC2 at  9:00 pm on Boxing Day, December 26th.

It is based on a play with songs called That Day We Sang that Miss Wood created for the Manchester International Festival which starred Jenna Russell.   Tubby and Enid sang in children’s choirs in Manchester in the late Twenties and they meet again forty years later when a TV documentary is made commemorating a famous recording of Nymphs and Shepherds.
