Playmill: Dance

How far would a father go for revenge?

Kemi’s being bullied and it’s getting out of control. Everything her dad does to help only makes it worse. 

But when Kemi is humiliatingly thrust into the limelight, the pair concoct a dark revenge that might just go viral. 

Dance is a captivating, funny and unpredictable story about how far people will go to take back control.

Dance premiered as a lockdown drama in 2020. Viewed over 1500 times, it was one of the Guardian’s Hottest Front-Row Seats and featured on the BBC Culture in Quarantine site.

Starring Saffron Coomber (Tracy Beaker Returns, Emilia) and Christopher Harper (Coronation Street, Dial M for Murder).

Age guidance: 15+ (contains strong language and adult themes)
