"See the ripples? You’re underneath. Your body’s under those ripples."

Brooklyn 1986. Joe & Elli have entered a major ballroom dancing competition. They have practiced hard and hope to win – but their plans are jeopardized when the unexpected arrival of a figure from their past confronts them with a profound moral dilemma.

Haunting, funny and poignant, DAYTONA is a play with two love stories at its heart.
