AFTER THE DANCE
BY TERENCE RATTIGAN
8 AUGUST – 9 SEPTEMBER
“The awful thing is that we’re still running away.”
David Scott-Fowler is a would-be historian, suffering writer’s block and mired in an alcoholic haze, his self-destructive lifestyle ruining his marriage.
When he falls into a relationship with the much-younger Helen, an idealist who is determined to ‘save’ him, events take on a tragic turn.
A searing study of a lost generation, Rattigan’s play, written in 1939, investigates the young people who survived World War One, lived life to the full in the hedonistic 1920s, only to find themselves, two decades later, disillusioned and on the brink of another war.
“One of the supreme dramatists of the 20th century” The Guardian
