About the event

Ian Grant’s new play explores how our acts reverberate down the generations. Inspired by a true event in 1918 and an unresolved family memory, After the Ball is a gripping ensemble piece, spanning sixty years, about desire, personal responsibility and the devastating repercussions of human conflict.

London, 1914. As the Great War breaks out in Europe, Blanche and William meet at a dance and marry. They share a political passion for peace, but William enlists to fight in Belgium. Amidst the horrors of the battlefield, he finds love with another woman, while Blanche is left at home with their baby.

Exploring love and betrayal during the war, After the Ball tears open the scars created by horror and guilt, and lays bare the lasting effect of war on the women of this family for generations to come.
