A view of the stage in the factory canteen, taken from 'the wings', showing Sally Gilmour dancing the title role in 'Peter and the Wolf'. Through the curtains, factory workers can be seen, eating their lunch as they watch the performance, a notice in the background reminding them where to put their cutlery. Backstage, just behind the curtain, in the foreground of the photograph, is Elizabeth Schooling, another dancer with the Ballet Rambert, who is darning one of her 'points' (ballet shoes).
