Capital E Production / New Zealand
From her hideaway in a
museum basement comes Ivy,
cleaning lady with a difference. Her humble set of wheels may look
like a cleaning cart, but

Join our heroine of hygiene as she takes you on a whirlwind trip
through history. From a clash with Cleopatra to schmoozing with
Shakespeare, and even a detour to the moon - our quirky queen
