SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS
Written by Richard Alfieri
MAY – May 8-30, 2020
Performances begin at 7:30pm
Lily, an aging but formidable retiree, hires Michael, an acerbic dance instructor, to give her dance lessons in her condo in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida. Antagonism between a gay man and the wife of a Southern Baptist minister gives way to profound compatibility as they swing dance, tango, foxtrot, and cha-cha while sharing barbs and life stories along with the dance steps. During the sixth lesson, Lily reveals a closely guarded secret and Michael shares his greatest gifts — loyalty and compassion. As Michael takes Lily in his arms on their final meeting, they both transcend fear while the sun sets on their last dance.
CAUTIONS: If this were a movie it would be rated PG. Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks includes adult themes, mild language and adult situations. Pre-teens and teens who watch prime-time TV won’t see much to shock them, but depending on the personality and exposure of your children, they may be confused. Your own judgment is the best guide for your family.
