Runtime:91-120 minutes
Synopsis:A true story of love, war, hate, intrigue, dancing and 'patriotism'.

In 1916 London, Toronto-born 'Salome dancer' Maud Allan has won fame and notoriety for her signature dance as the biblical femme fatale.

Then, Noel Pemberton-Billing, MP accuses her of membership in a 'cult' of 47,000 lesbians and gay men allegedly blackmailed into collaborating with German espionage. Allan has Billing prosecuted for libel, but his desperate accusations dragnet an expanding blacklist of British artists and politicians.

As distinctions between fantasy and reality, entertainment and terror collapse, Allan must fight to save her career and even, perhaps, her life. With original music by Elaine Fine.
