Crooked Dances Paperback / softback

Part of the Modern Plays series


You've heard of magic hour right? We're in it. right now. Journalist Katy is desperate for her big break, and an interview in Paris with world famous concert pianist Silvia de Zingaro looks like just her chance. But the odds are against her. After a disastrous interview, Katy feels certain there's a bigger story there than meets the eye.

She hunts for clues, finding Silvia has a collection of mystical books and an apparent fixation with composer Erik Satie.

Just as Katy's hope begins to fade, a mysterious night-time encounter with the pianist may well give her the scoop she's looking for... This compelling new play examines music, time and attention in our modern digital age. This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford Upon Avon in June 2019.
