Taking Steps

Taking Steps

By Alan Ayckbourn

A tongue-tied solicitor has bitten off more than he can chew overseeing the sale of a crumbling, possibly haunted house that, um, used to be a brothel. Then in the course of one hectic night and morning, two couples, the solicitor and realtor, each immersed in their own personal problems, end up in more of a mess than ever. And it all happens in a highly ingenious and original theatrical setting in which all the rooms, passages and stairs of this three-story house are on a single level. Did we mention there’s a ghost?! Let’s just say that in this British farce by the brilliant Alan Ayckbourn, hilarity definitely ensues!
