Taking Steps - 2017 - Regional (US) History , Info & More

Barrington Stage
30 Union St. Pittsfield, MA

Taking Steps is a laugh out-loud, riotously funny comedy. Elizabeth, a former dancer, will do anything to escape the overbearing clutches of her rich husband, Roland, who is poised to buy a haunted house (a former brothel). The dithering, confused Kitty, reunited with her monstrously boring fiance, will go to extraordinary lengths to elude his sleep-inducing presence. Add to the mix an inarticulate solicitor and a builder who is a motorcycle maniac, and you have one of Ayckbourn’s funniest and most heartfelt comedies.
