A new play with movement and music by Cordelia O’Neill

3rd – 27th May at Theatre 503, Battersea.

‘An officer drove me up to gates and told me to wait, that it was no place for a woman.’
The wife of a commandant is throwing a party. She asks her husband for champagne. Instead he brings home a ballet dancer from the camp.
An extraordinary story that explores the strength of marital love, the redemptive power of dance, and the survival of two women who live as neighbours – but are worlds apart.
