Acorn Antiques is the musical written by Victoria Wood based on a regular feature on her 80s TV show Victoria Wood As Seen On TV. Many of the original cast from the show appeared in the original musical ,including Julie Walters and Celia Imrie. The musical was warmly received and was given several Oliver Award nominations including Best New Musical. In 2007 Victoria Wood took on the role of Director as the show went on tour.
The musical is a comedy focusing on a family-run antiques business struggling to survive on an increasingly challenging High Street. One of the sisters wants to sell while the others want to fight for the shop's survival. With skeletons in the family closet, sibling rivalry and tap dancing with macaroons this musical is Victoria Wood at her best.
