In 1919, Badgersbridge Village Hall is Margaret’s domain and the last place she expected to come face to face with Grace; who knew and loved Margaret's brother. Through this chance meeting their two lives collide resulting in an unlikely pairing that will change the course of both of their futures.

Fast forward to 2019. Sean can't find his mother to meet Mirjana from the care company, here to help her around the home. Mirjana is from Sarajevo, but has lived in the village since escaping the war there as a teenager. The village hall has been her solace and proves an unlikely link between them.

With live music, waltzing and unexpected connections, dance through a century exploring how we return, resettle and adapt. Pentabus and New Perspectives collaborate for the first time to present a new play by Edinburgh Fringe First winning playwright Deirdre Kinahan, to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.
