In the wake of her grandmother's death, young Brisbane artist, Ellen Burton, discovers tantalising threads of a hidden story from her family's past. Consumed with grief and guilt, Ellen's only solace is to uncover the truth. She must travel to the US to meet with the man her family abhors, her grandfather Valdis. This man abandoned Ellen's grandmother in war-torn Latvia, collaborated with the SS to round up Jews and escaped the penalties of Nuremburg. She expects to hate him, but in Grandad Valdis there is a seductive amalgam of charisma and cruelty which blurs the border of hate and love for Ellen. Grandma is dead. Which of them is to blame? Ellen and Valdis take their first tentative steps in a dance to the death. Helen Howard and Michael Futcher's latest play is inspired by the true experiences of their friend, Elise Parups. (2 acts, 2 male, 2 female).
