The thrilling true story of Florence Waren, an intrepid Jewish resistance fighter and dazzling showgirl leading a perilous double life in WW2. Working fearlessly for the French resistance by day, Florence takes to the stage alongside icons Edith Piaf and Josephine Baker, every night at the infamous Bal Tabarin. Written by Florence’s relative, the 'breathtakingly skilful ensemble' (BBC Scotland) jump cut between worlds bursting with bravery, family and feather boas. With their trademark high production values, the 'superbly multi-talented' (**** (Scotsman)) Young Pleasance present their modern take on the glitz, glamour and glare of wartime Paris.
