About this Event

“If the piano was playing and Mother Cornelia happened into the room, she’d sweep up the nearest girl and waltz her off her feet.”

Inspired by the lives of two real women from two different eras, WALTZ WITH ME draws on the pioneering work of Cornelia Connelly, Reverend Mother and possible saint.

Maggie Byrne has to decide whether to leave her deeply unhappy marriage, knowing that her husband will do all he can to get custody of their two children. Visiting her old convent school, she finds herself beside the tomb of foundress, Mother Cornelia Connelly and, although she hasn’t been to church for years, prays for help.

Throughout the drama, waltzes, sacred and folk music weave together their separate stories of marriage, motherhood, break-up and devastating loss. Struggling to face each challenge, their passion and devotion persist, ultimately transforming adversity into deeper understanding and generosity of action, sweeping us to a surprisingly moving, perhaps even miraculous, denouement.

Each venue offers a distinctive space to reveal the play in different ways.

FRIDAY, MAY 22ND at 7.30PM at VOCES8, ST ANNE AND ST AGNES CHURCH – 17th century Wren church, converted into an atmospheric performance space - Gresham St, London EC2V 7BX.
