Stepping Out is a warm and funny play about the lives of a group of wannabe tappers. The action takes place at a weekly tap class where we meet 8 mismatched characters all trying to put their best foot (or feet) forward. For all of them, this is their chance to get away from the normal hum drum of life. Friendships are formed, conflicts take place and their tap dancing improves week to week. So much so that by the end there is a grand charity show performance where the class have been transformed into a triumphant group of tappers.

Characters: 1 Male/9 Female- The show depends upon great character building. Ages are a guide only and it will depend upon the mix of people we have and how they look in relation to each other. Basic tap dance ability preferred but not essential.

Rose: larger than life, lots of big jewelry, loud (vocally and in dress). Is friendly with Sylvia. Age: 35-50 ish

Cell Mates by Mark Seaman, Directed by Iain Macfarlane

In “Cell Mates” young Terry Cole is entering the prison System for the first time. His youthful swagger is tempered by his apprehension about what lies ahead. His meeting with his cell mate, George Reynolds who is serving a sentence for murder, has a profound effect on him.

The cast consists of 3 males

Terry: 18-20 years old, youthfully arrogant but hiding a vulnerable side (can be played by a slightly older actor who can play the age range)

George: 35 to 45 years old. A hard man but not inherently evil

Prison Officer: (minor role) 40 to 55 years old. Cold and officious

Act of Living by Robert Scott, Directed by Iain Macfarlane

In “Act of Living” we encounter Tom and Evelyn who first met in 1942, when they were children during the war, and see how their relationship grew and changed. As an old man in 2013, Tom looks back across the years to re-live their time together.

This is a two hander and ideally both cast members should be mid 30’s to mid 40’s. They must have the physical ability to play a child aged 8(Tom) and 9(Evelyn) through to a mature 79 (Tom) and 80 (Evelyn). This is certainly an actors’ play The ageing process will be achieved by subtle changes of costume, but mainly the physicality of the actor, coupled with cover music from each particular point in time.
