‘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.

About the Company

Small Things Theatre produce new work that delights, fascinates and challenges. Their first play The Stolen Inches was a sellout at Edinburgh 2015. Their regular Night of Small Things provides a platform for emerging artists of all disciplines to showcase their work.
