Directed by Luke Kernaghan, Downton Abbey star Nicol shares her journey from childhood to working actor to silver screen success with 10 original songs by composer and writer Mark Mueller, accompanying on piano. The production, with a book and music by Nicol and Mueller, features scenic design by Anshuman Bhatia, lighting design by Lucrecia Briceno, and sound design by Ray Nardelli.
