After The Dance

Terence Rattigan’s masterpiece was produced by GTP in 2012. Donald and Paola played the couple Peter and Joan trying to maintain their hedonistic lifestyle as the world was collapsing around them. The cast had a party imbibing gin and champagne. Mark Coleman directed this stylised production in 2012.

Our Paola De Rosa put on a brilliant production of this play with a great cast. Unfortunately, still today prejudice prevails in society. Hopefully, this […]
