Created by the writer and director team behind Holmes and Watson: The Farewell Tour, Find The Lady, Up Frankie and On Scarborough Front.

It’s Berlin, 1914, and every officer who attended a court ball had to have passed a dancing test conducted under the eagle eye of the court dancing mistress.  Kaiser Wilhelm has summoned a dance instructress from England to put his officers through their paces, but now war is only days away…

From ballroom to battlefield and beyond, this two-hander charts the friendship of a man and a woman caught in their nations’ crossfire.

Winner of the 2002 Buxton Festival Fringe Best Drama Award.
