Wallflowering revolves around the lives of Peg and Cliff Small, an ordinary, suburban, middle-aged couple who were once prize-winning ballroom dancers. The action is interspersed with ballroom dancing by a younger couple, who represent Peg and Cliff in their glory days, as well as the older couple’s romantic, idealised view of themselves.
Cliff dreams of becoming a writer, but can get no further than writing lists of clever book titles. Peg, on the other hand, is no longer content to quietly and unquestioningly follow her husband. She wants to take the lead, seeing the possibilities and excitement in change. These changes cause them to be out of step with each other and ultimately threaten their marriage.
In the swish of a taffeta skirt and slide of patent shoes across the floor, be transported to a glorious and romantic vision of Peg and Cliff as two perfectly synchronised and extraordinary people.
Wallflowering perfectly blends comedy and pathos, with an intermixed story of dreams and dance that will keep you on your toes.
