by Ian Kershaw & Clara Darcy

The amazing adventures of a woman with a fist in her head. Clara Darcy is fit! She's also (almost) care-free, (kind of) happily single and joyously dancing through life but, little does she know, her world is about to be turned upside down thanks to the arrival of a fist - slap-bang in the middle of her head. Based on her astonishing real-life story, There Should Definitely Be More Dancing explores the things that define us, that fill us up and make us who we are - a cautionary postcard from the edge of life stuffed full of heart and love and dancing. First produced by Oldham Coliseum Theatre, this edition was published to coincide with the world premiere production at Oldham Coliseum Theatre, followed by a national tour and run at the Assembly Rooms as part of Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
