Reviews

"A powerful blend of storytelling and provocation and should not be missed."
 
4 stars The Public Reviews
Jack, the Artistic Director of the country's leading dance company, is forced to make some difficult decisions when Penny, his principal dancer, is outed as a member of a right-wing organisation. A sustained campaign of protest by a group headed by Mr X brings the company to near bankruptcy and Jack is forced to meet Mr X's ever - increasing demands. Is Penny about to lose more than her career and reputation?
                                     
"Engrossing, nervy, altogether excellent play."
