An abandoned dance hall. Six young people desperate for fame, fortune and next week’s rent. An unscrupulous promoter. A ravenous audience and a stranger with a past he’s trying to hide.
Out of the real-life phenomenon of 1930s dance marathons comes a new play which uses a blend of drama, music and movement to speak directly to our younger generation: those brought up on a diet of X Factor and reality TV, against the backdrop of a world seemingly in financial freefall.
