A play by Billy Cowan
Jack, the Artistic Director of the country's leading dance company, is forced to make some difficult decisions when Penny, his principal dancer, is outed as a member of a right-wing organisation. A sustained campaign of protest by a group headed by Mr X brings the company to near bankruptcy and Jack is forced to meet Mr X's ever - increasing demands. Is Penny about to lose more than her career and reputation? Billy Cowan is an award-winning playwright having won the 2002 Writing Out Award for Best New Gay Play for Smilin’ Through organised by Finborough Theatre, London. In 2010 he also won Warehouse Theatre’s International Playwriting award for Transitions.
