Keep on Dancing
By Sally Worboyes
An East End saga of courage, grit and humour
Rosie Curtis is devastated when her brother Tommy is viciously murdered after dabbling in the criminal underworld. Not only is her carefree existence suddenly over but, without Tommy's support, her dreams of becoming a dancer are shattered. Powerless to avenge her brother's death, Rosie throws herself into saving a local music hall from closure and planning a musical spectacular, despite the misgivings of her family.
But when Rosie comes face to face with her brother's slayer, she realises she must stop at nothing to see the criminals punished. While she fights to stage her show and put Tommy's killers away for good, her brother's smiling face appears in her thoughts, telling her to keep on dancing... can she find the strength without him?
Sally Worboyes was born and grew up in Stepney with four brothers and a sister. She now lives in Norfolk with her husband and three children. She has written plays broadcast on Radio Four, East End sagas published by Headline, and has adapted her own play and novel, WILD HOPS, as a musical, THE HOP-PICKERS.
