A dazzling dissection of love, class and the capacity for self-deceit.
David and Joan Scott-Fowler were Bright Young Things of the 1920s and live a glamorous life of hedonism and pleasure: debauched parties, serious drinking, sparkling wit and superficiality.
But times have moved on and they are no longer as bright or as young as they once were. When a young and idealistic couple come into their lives, they begin to realise that the gaiety of their youth is wearing thin and the precarious game around which their existence is constructed begins to fall apart.
Sharply satirical and heartrendingly beautiful, After the Dance is about a world on the cusp of enormous change. Neglected for many years, it is now considered to be one of the great works of a master dramatist.

Christmas Event: Saturday 3rd December, 2016
2 Dugard Way (off Renfrew Road), London SE11 4TH
Rattigan on Screen
2.30 p.m.. The Cinema Museum
Guest of Honour: Liz Fraser
London’s Cinema Museum is devoted to keeping alive the spirit of cinema. Set in historic surroundings in the former Lambeth Workhouse, Kennington, close to the Elephant & Castle, the Cinema Museum houses a unique collection of artefacts, memorabilia and equipment that preserves the history and grandeur of cinema from the 1890s to the present day, including items relating to former Workhouse inmate, Charlie Chaplin.
Clive Montellier will open the event by interviewing our Guest of Honour, Liz Fraser. Well known for her many appearances in British films, Liz Fraser has a number of connections with the world of Rattigan. In 1970, she appeared opposite Telly Savalas in a TV production of Man and Boy, and she has also appeared on stage in Flarepath. In addition, one of her early cameo roles was in Wonderful Things, opposite our President in her film debut.
Our featured film for the day will be ‘The Sound Barrier’ released in 1952 with screenplay by Terence Rattigan. Epitomising the groundbreaking work of the British aviation industry, this was the film highlighted by Simon Heffer in his address to the Birthday Dinner as one of the shining examples of post-War British film-making. Our day will also include a tour of the museum for those who have not already had this experience.
Tickets cost £12 to include refreshments.
