Margaret Fulton is more than just our national cooking matriarch, she is a living legend. Her life story is full of the ingredients needed to make a musical.

Doug MacLeod (head writer and producer of The Comedy Company and Fast Forward) and Yuri Worontschak (composer of everything from Fast Forward to Shaun Micallef's Mad as Hell) collaborate with the Present Tense ensemble (Chants Des Catacombes) to bring her unique and surprising story to the stage, in this highly original musical experience.

"Doug MacLeod has always made me laugh. Not so much from his writing as his dress sense and various speech impediments.'" Shaun Micallef
