    An Unchoreographed World explores a dramatic formative event in the life of one of the truly great dancers of our time, the young Margot Fonteyn.

    It's May 10th 1940, and she is trapped in Holland during the German invasion with her older lover, the composer Constant Lambert, and the fledgling Sadler's Wells Ballet. Frances Byrne's drama draws on contemporary accounts to evoke a time when, her life threatened, Fonteyn discovers who she really is, and what her destiny might cost her.
