Stepping Out

February 2003
No 33

As part of the Leicester Comedy Festival, the University of Leicester Theatre is putting on a comedy written by Richard Harris.

Stepping Out is a hilarious play around the lives and loves of a group of women (and one man) attending a weekly tap-dance class in a dingy North London church hall. 

Voted Comedy of the Year by the Evening Standard Drama Awards in 1984, Stepping Out, directed by Sarah Frain, is the University of Leicester Theatre’s contribution to the Leicester Comedy Festival 2003. Following hot on the heels of such Comedy Festival successes as The Importance of Being Earnest and Mort, Stepping Out promises to be an unforgettable toe-tapping experience.

The University of Leicester performances of Stepping Out will take place from Thursday – Saturday, February 13-15, 2003 at the Queen’s Hall Theatre, University of Leicester main campus. Tickets costing £5.50, £4 (concessions) are available from the University Bookshop, telephone 0116 252 2000, or on the door.

Friday’s performance will be signed for the deaf and hard of hearing.
