Frankston Arts Centre : March 2004
Set in North London, the story follows the lives of the members of an amateur tap class. Each attending for their own reasons, Harris’ play is a wonderfully endearing tale of how determination, friendship and camaraderie can shape even the most bashful into proud performers.
Mavis, a professional dancer who didn’t quite make it past the chorus line, now runs her own class in the local village hall for anyone in the area. A mixed, and otherwise incompatible, group of seven women and one man meet weekly for their tap-dancing class in a dingy North London church hall. Each struggling to conquer either their inhibitions or dance technique, or both!
Then the day comes when Mavis breaks the news to the group that they have been invited to perform in front of an audience for a big charity concert.
With varying degrees of talent and determination we see how each class member copes with the challenge…but with only a few weeks to learn an impressive tap routine, will they do it in time? Can they make it? Or will they all, literally, fall flat on their faces?
