By Noël Coward. "Our lives are diametrically opposed to ordinary social conventions... we've got to find our own solutions for our own peculiar moral problems." Three fashionably bohemian socialites are united - and divided - by their tangled love lives: Gilda, an interior designer; her lover Otto, a painter; and her other lover Leo, a successful playwright. Their story unfolds in a series of passionate encounters, bitter quarrels and rocky love affairs spanning several years and across the romantic cities of Paris, London and New York. Lifelong friends Otto and Leo are torn apart by their jealous rivalry for Gilda and sense of betrayal, but ultimately the trio are drawn together again by bonds of love and friendship that are as strong and fulfilling as they are unconventional. Debuting on Broadway in 1933, this comedy was controversial for its themes of sexual and romantic liberation, while its dialogue is packed with Noël Coward's characteristically acerbic wit. This amateur production of "Design for Living" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.

by Richard Harris. "Sway, sway, arm up, hat down... and let’s get into this big tap routine you’ve all been waiting for!" A small class of amateur dancers meets for evening tap lessons each week in a run-down church hall. The ever-patient Mavis – who has retired from a career as a professional dancer – teaches the class, while the grouchy Mrs Fraser provides piano accompaniment and sarcastic remarks. The group’s dancing skills are as varied as their clashing personalities, but the prospect of performing in a local charity gala prompts the ladies (and the class’s one man) to step up their game, put aside their differences and put their dancing skills to the test. This Evening Standard Award winning comedy drama by acclaimed playwright and TV writer Richard Harris follows the friendships, insecurities, laughter and quarrels of the group as they prepare to face to music and dance. This amateur production of "Stepping Out" is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH LTD.
