Quartet

by Ronald Harwood

11th to 18th October 2014

Quartet is a funny, touching play with naughty innuendoes about growing old.   The film starred Pauline Collins, Billy Connolly, Maggie Smith and Tom Courtenay in 2012.

The plot focuses on three, once famous, ageing opera singers in a retirement home for musicians. The new arrival Jean -  the huge star and “diva” - is cleary not happy about joining the “inmates”.  A gala concert is about to take place celebrating Verdi's birthday.  Three of the four want to recreate the third act quartet from Rigoletto and one doesn't!  Will the four ever sing together again?
