Valentina Formenti is Sheila with Will Kemp as 60's swinger Anthony in Matthew Bourne's latest piece of dance theatre, Play Without Words.

When wealthy playboy Anthony buys a new flat in 1960's Chelsea, he naturally wants to show it off to his beautiful fiancee, Glenda, and their friends. To keep the new place perfect, he hires a servant, Prentice, who, in turn, brings along a maid. But just when Anthony thinks life can't be better, everything around him starts to unravel. Play Without Words is triple-cast among the leads as three dancers appear on stage at the same time, playing the differing emotions in Anthony and Prentice and Glenda.
