13 - 30 April
An Oldham Coliseum Theatre and New Vic Theatre, Newcastle-under-Lyme Production
Kiss Me Quickstep
Love, latin and lycra
A new play from the writer of Ladies' Day and the hugely popular Be My Baby.
Kiss Me Quickstep is the story of competitive ballroom dancing - both on and off the dance floor - and the real people behind the fixed smile and fake tans.
Justin and Jodie have finally made it to Blackpool's national championships - via the motorway hard shoulder. Luka's come all the way from Russia. Nancy's been training for this since she was just three. Lee and Samantha arrive on a wave of success.
But what if your dance-floor dreams are turning into a nightmare? How do you stop dancing to other people's tunes? What can you do if your partner's secret could cost you the crown? And, even when the whole world's at your feel, it only takes one false step...
A must for all fans Strictly Come Dancing...
