You’ve been away almost two years. I haven’t seen you, I haven’t hardly heard from you… I’m your wife.

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.

Ian Grant’s new play explores how the effects of war reverberate down the generations. Inspired by a true event, and spanning sixty years, After the Ball is a gripping ensemble piece about desire, personal responsibility and the devastating repercussions of human conflict.

Directed by Nadia Papachronopoulou (Unrivalled Landscape ★★★★ Time Out – Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond) and produced by Time Productions (Tiny Dynamite – Old Red Lion Theatre), After the Ball was shortlisted for the Terence Rattigan Society New Play Award 2017.

Highgate playwright Ian Grant’s previous work includes Stella Europa (Hen and Chickens Theatre) and the libretto Thomas Boleyn (Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, Guildford). He is Chairman of Inpress Ltd and The Poetry Book Society, and co-founded Time Productions after a successful 40 year career in publishing.
