From Sadler’s Wells: “Chelsea, 1965. Behind the privileged façade of domestic social order lies a struggle for power, territory and sexual domination. In a suave Chelsea home an urbane master and his beautiful fiancée welcome their new manservant, Prentice. What follows will change their lives forever. Sexy, chic and thrillingly original, this dance drama is a spellbinding carnival of seduction, intrigue and power.
- “A vibrant, wicked satire of class conflict and sexual desire set in Swinging Sixties London and told exclusively through movement and music” THE TIMES
