Stepping Out is a warm and very funny play about the lives, laughs and loves of a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a dingy North London church hall. There is ex-professional dancer, Mavis, who runs the class: cheerfully overweight Sylvia: Andy, a plain do-gooder with no confidence; snobby, but well-meaning Vera; timid Dorothy who works in Social Security; Maxine, attractive, sharp and very shrewd; nurse, Lynne; outgoing Rose; Geoffrey, the lone male and Mrs Fraser, the pianist. As the play progresses, the class’s dancing improves to such an extent that by the climax, a grand charity show performance, they have been transformed into triumphant tappers, worthy of any chorus line.
