After the Dance

First staged in 1939, the play now often thought to be Terence Rattiganâs masterpiece offers a subtle, witty unmasking of the hedonistic 20s generation and a devastating study of repression and the human heart.

As the world races towards catastrophe, a crowd of Mayfair socialites party their way to oblivion. At its centre is David, who idles away his sober moments researching a futile book until the beautiful Helen decides to save him, shattering his marriage and learning too late the depth of both Davidâs indolence and his wifeâs undeclared love. But with finances about to crash and humanity on the brink of global conflict, the drink keeps flowing and the revellers dance on.
