A sequin-studded warm-hearted ballroom drama

Three young couples are striving for glory on the competitive dance circuit - having finally made it to Blackpool's National Amateur Championships via the motorway hard shoulder.

But there's pain and heartbreak beneath the dazzling glitter ball when you're dancing to other people's tunes and hiding secrets.‎ And with the world at your feet, it only takes one false step...

This bittersweet comedy reveals the backstage stories behind the fabulous frocks, fixed smiles and fake tan, looking at the real lives of those for whom dancing is everything.

Described as Britain's 'most consistently popular female dramatist', Amanda Whittington writes for theatre and radio (including Women's Hour). Previous hits at the Queen's Theatre include Ladies Day and Satin 'n' Steel.

Please note that we have an exciting new seating plan for Kiss Me Quickstep with an additional bank of seats behind the stage. This show will be performed in the round, with actors performing to all sides. If you have any questions about this seating plan please speak to one of our ticket sales assistants on 01473 295900.
