Langarm is a musical by David Kramer.
In 1965, the recently widowed Dinah Levin invites her nephew Jeff to help her manage her late husband’s Canterbury Hotel. At the hotel, he meets Angelina, a lovely young ballroom dancer who asks him to partner her in The Swaziland Ballroom Championships. Seeing this as an opportunity to humiliate his ex-fiancé, who has just dumped him, Jeff agrees, even though he will risk arrest by flouting the laws of apartheid-era South Africa. When Jeff decides to rejuvenate the Canterbury by offering langarm dances and Eddie Jephta, the leader of the Moonlight Serenaders langarm band, comes to play, Dinah has to confront the secrets of her past.
