After the Dance, by Terence Rattigan

Quote from the theatre brochure

A dazzling dissection of love, class and the capacity for self-deceit.

David and Joan Scott-Fowler were Bright Young Things of the 1920s and live a glamorous life of hedonism and pleasure: debauched parties, serious drinking, sparkling wit and superficiality.

But times have moved on and they are no longer as bright or as young as they once were. When a young and idealistic couple come into their lives, they begin to realise that the gaiety of their youth is wearing thin and the precarious game around which their existence is constructed begins to fall apart.

Sharply satirical and heartrendingly beautiful, After the Dance is about a world on the cusp of enormous change. Neglected for many years, it is now considered to be one of the great works of a master dramatist.

Handbagged, by Moira Buffini

Quote from the theatre brochure

When Maggie met the Queen
Tea at four
Handbags at dawn

Two icons, one destined to rule, the other to lead. But when the gloves came off, who had the upper hand? Moira Buffini’s sensational comedy looks behind the closed doors of the palace to speculate what really happened when two of the most powerful women in the world clashed.

This funny, insightful and brilliantly sharp satire was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy in 2015 and went on to be a West End smash hit.
