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 was commissioned by Nottingham Playhouse and premieres there in February before moving on to Bolton Octagon. It is directed by Esther Richardson, Director of the Theatre Writing Partnership.
