Windsor Theatre Guild's next production marks quite a landmark for the group - as they will be performing it in two separate venues in the same week.

The Guild celebrates its 80th birthday this year by staging Terence Rattigan's 1939 play After the Dance, which opened in London only weeks before the Second World War broke out.

It can be seen all week from Tuesday to Saturday, November 19 to 23 at Windsor's 17th century Guildhall, except for Wednesday, November 20 when it will play at the Castle Hotel opposite.

After the Dance is a powerful social satire full of sharp, witty lines.

It begins as comedy but turns increasingly dark as an ageing group of 1920s 'bright young things' carry on relentlessly partying, as the world they knew disintegrates and the shadow of a new war looms.

Into their world comes a serious minded young woman who acts as a catalyst when she begins an affair with a much older, hard drinking writer, who begins to believe in the possibility of transforming his life. But is it already too late?

After the Dance was an early work by Terence Rattigan who went on to pen some of the most famous plays of the 1940s and 1950s.

It was largely forgotten for many years as people tried to put the uncertainties of the pre-war era behind them. But recent revivals have led it being belatedly recognised as a masterpiece.
