Ida Barr is a music hall singer who has embraced hip hop and rap, reflecting the culturally diverse landscape of the London's East End, where she has been living in retirement for several decades. She lives in Thabo Mbeki Court, shops at Lidl, has a warden called Mrs. Gupta, and a friend called Maude Edwardes (an elderly male impersonator with a shady past). She's an inner city pensioner in multi-cultural post-new Labour Britain; her glory days are behind her but her creativity is still flowering.
