Quartet is a witty play by Ronald Harwood
Funny and touching play about growing old disgracefully. A funny and poignant play about four ageing opera singers who reside in a retirement home in Kent. Each year the residents perform a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday but soon old rivalries resurface and chaos unfolds. The hilarity of growing old disgracefully is combined with a touching insight into the four lives. The very successful film version starring Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins and Tom Courtenay was enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. This is a production that will make you laugh and cry.
Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a home for retired opera singers. Each year, on 10 October, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva and refuses to sing. But the show must go on … By turns funny and poignant.
