No Place For a Woman


A play with movement and music by Cordelia O’Neill

'An officer drove me up to gates and told me to wait, that it was no place for a woman.'

The wife of a commandant is throwing a party. She asks her husband for champagne. Instead he brings home a ballet dancer from the camp. An extraordinary story that explores the strength of marital love, the redemptive power of dance, and the survival of two women who live as neighbours – but are worlds apart.

Praise for The Stolen Inches:
'Subversive and intriguing piece of social satire' - The Scotsman

'O’Neill’s cleverly constructed play [has]... pager-turner tension' - The Stage
