A theatrical companion-piece to singer and multi-instrumentalist Rowan Rheingans’s acclaimed debut solo album, 2019’s The Lines We Draw Together, this Fringe First-winning performance – likewise inspired by her German grandmother’s 1940s childhood – combines original songs and storytelling with fiddle and banjo accompaniment, live looping and pre-recorded sounds. Variously exploring themes of 'memory, history, fascism, waltzes, folk-song, bird-song, trauma, family and war', it ultimately celebrates human empathy and resilience, together with the power of small acts of resistance.

'Utterly spellbinding singing and narration... and as the red dress’ true origin unfolds, the revelation will leave you quietly breathless' ***** The Scotsman
'Sublime...a narrative stitched with the subtlety of an expert dressmaker... celebrates family, nature and the ties that bind and goes on to pack a fierce political punch.' **** The Guardian (Folk Album of the Month)
