Speaking at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, in London, Wood said she first mooted the idea for a musical back in 2001.Acorn Antiques will open at London's Theatre Royal Haymarket in February 2005, directed by Trevor Nunn.
"I wanted to write a musical and it was just like a brainwave," she said.
"I thought 'why not make it about Acorn Antiques?' It is something that people may recognise."
Jokingly described by Wood as a "modern morality tale", the musical is set in a small theatre in Sutton Coldfield where the director - played by Neil Morrissey - is hoping to rehearse his new work.
