Description

A story of a man who decides to be a dancer. Daniel's living the patriarchal dream, everything that should bring happiness. It hasn't. He discovers what he really wants, but is it what he needs? A comedy about male ego and dancing by Ed Eales-White. Writer/performer of Clever Peter and Bucket. As seen in National Treasure (Channel 4), The Crown (Netflix) and Olivier Award-winning Rotterdam (Trafalgar Studios/NYC). 'Perfectly embodies the play's balance between brisk humour and sensitivity' (Evening Standard, for Olivier Award-winning play Rotterdam). 'Eales-White the foppish, earnest auteur' (Guardian).
