“CRITIC'S PICK...The entire cast is very impressive…White is a hoot and Runyon’s tongue-tied nerdiness is a delight. …this frothy confection soon is kicking up its heels." –BACKSTAGE

“RIOTOUSLY farcical… ADROIT character-driven comedy…WONDERFULLY VIVID, three-dimensional, and unexpectedly dark characterizations.” –LA Weekly

“A ROMP…the Odyssey thumbs their noses at grim prognostications about the parlous state of theatre and invites us to join them for a HEARTY LAUGH… a tonic that will keep outside troubles at bay for the duration.” –L.A. Times

Taking Steps by Alan Ayckbourn, England's master farceur, involves an attic, a lounge, a wife in a quandary and a fiancée in a cupboard, a devious builder, a nervous solicitor, a ponderous personnel officer and a drunken bucket manufacturer all embroiled in a tale of love, confusion and freedom. The farcical merry mix-ups unfurl in the course of one evening and during the rude awakenings of its morning after denouement.

The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, Ron Sossi Artistic Director present Taking Steps by acclaimed playwright Alan Ayckbourn.
