Against a backdrop of belting songs and powerful emotion, Satin ‘n’ Steel is a moving feel-good piece of theatre from Amanda Whittington, one of the UK’s most highly regarded playwrights.

A karaoke competition at the Rainworth Miners’ Welfare Club brings together seasoned pro, Vince Steel, and talented beginner, Teena White. Together they form the all-singing, all-dancing club duo Satin ‘n’ Steel and set their sights on the big time.

Tom Roberts, as seen in Emmerdale, Doctors and 2point4 Children, plays Vince, and Kilke John, whose theatre credits include Crazy For You plays Teena.

Playwright Amanda Whittington said: “I’m delighted Satin ‘n’ Steel is embarking on its first British tour.

“It is 10 years since the first production but the themes of the play are still relevant, perhaps more so in times of austerity.

“I’ve made a few changes to bring the story right up-to-date and it’s been great to revisit the characters and think about where they are now.

“I’m looking forward to seeing how audiences around the country react to them.”

Satin ‘n’ Steel is directed by former Hull Truck Theatre artistic director Gareth Tudor Price.

Satin ‘n’ Steel is at the Spotlight Theatre, on Saturday June 20 at 7.30pm.
