Roberts & John Productions inaugural touring production of Amanda Whittington’s Satin ‘n’ Steel is heading to The Georgian Theatre Royal on Friday 8 May at 7.30pm as part of the play’s first ever British tour.
Set against a world of one night gigs in sleazy northern clubs, this gritty comedy reveals the highs and lows of performing in the shady, dark cabaret circuit in the north of England. A sensational mix of classic pop songs Daydream Believer, The Wind Beneath My Wings, Don’t Go Breaking My Heart, Time After Time, I Will Survive and Johnny B Goode provide a colourful musical backdrop.
A karaoke competition at the Rainworth Miners' Welfare Club brings together seasoned pro, Vince Steel, and talented beginner, Teena White, in an explosion of talent and creativity. He persuades her to form a duo - and to change her name. As the all-singing and all-dancing Satin 'n' Steel, they set their sights on the big time. And as love blossoms, it seems nothing could go wrong. But a guilty secret threatens to jeopardise their designs on super-stardom.
Taking her inspiration from the showbiz world of the club circuit, the cruise ship and the holiday camp, Nottingham writer Amanda Whittington has created a warm-hearted story of not quite making it in either the fame business or the love department.
Satin ‘n’ Steel will star Tom Roberts (Emmerdale, Doctors, 2point4 Children) as Vince, and Kilke John (Crazy For You, A Christmas Carol) as Teena. The play is directed by Gareth Tudor Price the former artistic director of Hull Truck Theatre Company.
