The riotous comedy is a delicious cocktail of mismatched lovers, dirty dancing, bad hair and real estate!
Taking Steps takes place in three rooms on one chaotic night in a creaky Victorian mansion, ripe for re-development.
Elizabeth wants to leave Roland; Roland wants to buy the house for Elizabeth; Leslie wants to sell the house to Roland; Kitty wants to leave Mark and Mark wants to keep Kitty. Tristram, meanwhile, is extremely worried about seeing a ghost...
Ensemble Theatre's Artistic Director Mark Kilmurry has assembled a stellar cast for this ingenious play that entertains on so many levels.

"In Drew Livingston the production has the absurd yet rock-solid central performance and he is a daft delight. Christa Nicola too is very funny as the dancer with the leastest…her frenetic practice routines and pretensions are pleasurably awful. Simon London brings wide-eyed puzzlement to his role as her boring brother whose aim in life is to open a fishing tackle shop and live happily ever after with Kitty – who sensibly made a run for it, but has inexplicably returned. Emma Harvie carries off this mix of hopelessness and indecision with aplomb and comical gloom. It's a treat to discover these three talents on the Ensemble stage. Peter Kowitz and Andrew Tighe are the well known vets of the company and do what they do with deceptive ease and skill…The fresh faces are a pleasure, Drew Livingston is splendid and a lot of people in the opening night audience got a lot of laughs. Now much looking forward to The Norman Conquests" Stagenoise
"The production is a sleek one, with good energy from a well-rehearsed cast… a classic farce. Peter Kowitz is particularly credible…effortlessly charming. Emma Harvie and Drew Livingston are refreshing presences" Suzy Goes See
"...physical humour abounds...All the performances are strong..." Oz Baby Boomers
