The BallroomLarge Print - 2017
1911: Inside an asylum on the edge of the Yorkshire moors, where men and women are kept apart by high walls and barred windows, there is a ballroom, vast and beautiful. For one bright evening every week, the inmates come together and dance... This is the story of John, an Irishman with a past cloaked in mystery - only time will tell why he has been locked up in the asylum. Of Clemency, who has been incarcerated by her father and brother after starving herself rather than marry an abusive man. Of Ella, who was dragged away from the factory where she worked after smashing a window. Of Charles, a doctor and eugenics enthusiast. And in the ballroom one May night, the lives of two people are set to change for ever...
