“A fantastic performance and a huge thank to you all at “SummerLight Theatre” for a fabulously modern take on such a classic.... Great performance by all and I applauded you all for incorporating the “Salsa”. Utterly enchanting evening in a truly wonderful hall.” Chris Garner, Essex

“It was brilliant. The writing was spot on. Amazing! We were smiling, laughing all the way through. The Salsa songs came on and I was just in my chair wanting to shimmy and shake a bit. It was just fantastic! It really was a combo between the Shakespeare and Salsa and modern day and I really recommend it. 10 out of 10.” Caroline Elman, Essex

"It was an amazing evening. So impressive. The dialogue and the dancing was just incredible. So much fun. So well done. So glad I came. I'd love to see it again." Patricia Wilbourne, Essex

Down in sunny Cadiz, young Faith is due to marry Calvin, who adamantly refuses to learn to dance. Roped in by her charismatic father, Leon, to inspire Calvin onto the dancefloor, ex flames Bea and Ben re-ignite their spiky and passionate association – rather against their wills.

But an unexpected turn of events brings darkness to Faith’s wedding day. Will a once-solid relationship be destroyed forever, or can it be restored through the magic of love and Salsa?

A hilarious, salsa-flavoured theatrical experience, bringing all the light and shade of Shakespeare’s greatest comedy onto a 21st century dancefloor.

Joanna O’Connor’s original play is available to buy via Amazon.
