Dancock's Dance

By Guy Vanderhaeghe

Shell-shocked, judged un?t for society and haunted by the sins of war, Lieutenant John Carlyle Dancock ?nds himself committed to an insane asylum where he cannot escape the con?nes of righteous authority or his own conscience, which visits him in the ghostly apparition of a soldier he once tormented. Dancock’s Dance is an emotionally haunting play in which one broken man clings breathlessly to a hope for redemption. Vanderhaeghe’s stark, vivid portrayal of internal and worldly chaos rings with hope and shimmers in the craft of his language.

"Highly imaginative, vividly written play."
