New York City
Taking Steps is a riot of hilarity. Elizabeth, a former dancer, will do anything to escape the overbearing clutches of her rich husband, Roland, who’s poised to buy a haunted house (a former brothel). The dithering, confused Kitty, briefly reunited with her deathly boring husband, will go to extraordinary lengths to elude his sleep-inducing presence. Put into the mix an inarticulate solicitor and a builder who’s a motorcycle maniac, and you have one of Alan Ayckbourn’s funniest and most heartfelt comedies.
