After the Dance archive1939. Mayfair. David and Joan Scott-Fowler are a high-living and hard-drinking couple who are still trying to live the hedonistic excess of their - and the century's - twenties. Through the eyes of a younger generation, the endless drinking, partying and gossip look dangerously frivolous as Europe falls towards another war. When the reforming zeal of another woman evolves into love for David, a fateful shadow is thrown over their twelve year marriage. With poignancy and wit, Rattigan reveals the gaudy emptiness of the Bright Young Things as they move into middle age. First presented to great acclaim in 1939 and forced to close with the onset of war, After the Dance has remained unperformed for over sixty years.

Author Terence Rattigan.
