Antonio is a dance crazed kid who has always dreamt of tripping the light fantastic on Strictly. But when a tragic accident leaves him confined to a wheelchair his dreams are crushed. Angry and bitter, Antonio sinks into a dark depression, refusing to rehabilitate himself. All seems lost until Jacky, his Nan, reminds him of the power of ballroom dancing and hatches a plan to convince Antonio his life isn’t over.

Colchester playwright Paul T Davies’ heart-warming new play beautifully captures the strength of the human spirit and the power of love and redemption.
