Genèse: Victoria Wood decided to revive the original concept to satirise musical theatre with Acorn Antiques: The Musical!, with the intent to give people a "lovely, happy night in the theatre." It was directed by Trevor Nunn, and opened at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket in February 2005 for a three month sell-out run. Parodying successful musicals such as Les Misérables and Chicago, it also caricatured the trend for socio-realism in contemporary drama and the conventions of song and choreography in musicals. It featured three of the principal actors from the original reprising their roles (or, strictly, the parts of the fictional actors from the spoof documentary); Duncan Preston returned as Clifford as did Celia Imrie as Babs and Julie Walters as Mrs Overall. Victoria Wood alternated with Walters in that role, and her character Miss Berta was played by Sally Ann Triplett. The musical also introduced Miss Bonnie (Josie Lawrence), a sister of Miss Babs and Miss Berta (who are apparently sisters now and no longer cousins as they were originally).
Résumé: The actors in a TV soap called “Acorn Antiques” are out of work because the series has been axed, so the cast reunite with the object of turning the show into a stage musical. Act One sees them rehearse and bitch about the script, about each other and the director; Act Two sees the opening performance at the Enoch Powell Arts Centre in Sutton Coldfield with its consequent mishaps, rivalries and cock-ups.
