Programme Note #1: Stepping Out

FM wrote: “Stepping Out is a beautifully written comedy about people. All the characters are well defined and interesting, while the dancing gives a new slant to this comedy.

When I saw this play a few years ago, I laughed from beginning to end. I think the secret of its success is that we can all identify with a character in the play.

I hope you enjoy our interpretation.”
