Stepping Out is a hugely popular play that won the 1984 Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy. It follows the lives of seven women and one man (Geoffrey, the ‘doormat’) who meet at a weekly dance class in a dingy North London church hall to tap their troubles away, accompanied by miserable, moaning pianist Mrs Fraser. Led by the patient ex-professional Mavis, the group begin their journey with two left feet and end up exceeding all expectations when they are asked to perform in a public charity gala.
Playgoers’ veteran Pat Brinicombe, who took part in a previous Playgoers’ production, now returns as director. And some of the performers have real-life experience of joining tap dance classes as mature students, though they never won any competitions!
Come and enjoy a trip back to the 1980s with this feel-good show, full of comedy gold.
