The village hall, 1919. This is Margaret’s domain and the last place she expected to come face to face with Grace, who knew Margaret's brother in the war. Through this chance meeting their two lives collide resulting in an unlikely pairing that will change the course of both their futures. 

Fast forward to 2019. Sean can't find his mother to meet Mirjana from the care company, here to help her stay in her own 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, two actors will dance you through a century exploring how we return, resettle and adapt. 
 
Six word title: “Let's dance through a century of unexpected connections”
