Phyllis, an Anglo-Indian memsahib, has married a British soldier. His mother and sister find it hard to tolerate a high-spirited, solar topee wearing ‘foreigner’. She has sacrificed her life of privilege in India, to live in England with her new husband’s family. As WW2 takes hold, his regiment is posted overseas. Phyllis is left to defend herself from her in-law’s cold and increasingly cruel attitude. She struggles to rescue her baby from being snatched away by her childless sister-in-law. Dance with Fireflies is based on a true story. Thoughtfully written, it explores the prejudice facing an Anglo-Indian woman arriving in England from the decaying Raj.
