Stepping Out, a wonderfully funny and heart-warming play was a huge triumph for Richard Harris with a deservedly long West End run.

And now it comes to The Mill at Sonning from November 26-January 16.

Set in a North London church hall, STEPPING OUT tells of the trials and triumphs of a ladies tap dancing class – seven women and one lone male – as they progress towards an important climactic charity concert.

The comedy hots up as personalities clash. There’s attractive Maxine and overweight Sylvia; eager Lynne and shy Dorothy; snobby Vera and do-gooder Andy; exotic Rose and embarrassed – well he is the only man! – Geoffrey. Not forgetting the teacher, Mavis, an ex-professional dancer who failed to make the big time by a soupcon of circumstances and now pushes the class towards high standard and a grand finale.

Sally Hughes directs a cast including Belinda Carroll as Dorothy, Amber Edlin as Mavis and Elizabeth Elvin as Vera.

Ticket prices vary but start from £47.50 (inclusive of Dinner, Programme and Show).

Set majestically on the banks of the River Thames, The Mill at Sonning promises a unique experience not to be missed where your visit includes both dinner and a show all under one roof in a beautiful converted water mill.
