Battersea Bardot is a one woman musical about the life of actress Carol White, who found fame in the 60s, including in the iconic Ken Loach drama Cathy Come Home.

We chat about what inspired Ewen to write this musical, why White’s life and career make for an interesting story, and what it’s like to create a one woman musical.

London, New Year’s Eve, 1969. Movie star Carol White has achieved success beyond her wildest dreams, but has paid a high price. As the decade that made her draws to a close, the ghosts of her past, the highs and lows of her whirlwind career, threaten to overwhelm her.
