Dispatches on the Red Dress is an intimate and courageous new show by twice BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winning songwriter Rowan Rheingans and Dramaturg Liam Hurley.
An award-winning hit show at this years Edinburgh Fringe Festival, adventurous new writing meets the warmth of a folk gig in this heartfelt and personal one woman show, uniquely weaving immersive storytelling with live fiddle, banjo and original songs taken from Rowan's brand new genre-melding debut solo album The Lines We Draw Together (The Guardian's Folk Album of the Month).
Unravelling the joy and pain from a story of her grandmother’s youth in 1940's Germany, Rowan celebrates small acts of resistance and boldly asks a troubling question for our times: can hope for our future be found in the very darkest pockets of our history?
