Get ready to laugh, sigh and cry a little as four retired opera singers take you into the bittersweet world of facing up to age and mortality.
Written by Ronald Harwood and directed by Gwen Browning at Limelight Theatre, Quartet is set in an aged care home with Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred ready to celebrate Verdi's birthday with an annual concert. Reggie's ex-wife Jean arrives and upsets the balance, continuing to act like a diva and refusing to sing – but the show must go on.
In 2012, a film adaptation was directed by Dustin Hoffman and starred Billy Connolly, Maggie Smith, Pauline Collins and Tom Courtenay.
Quartet plays at 8pm September 17, 18, 19, 24, 25, October 1, 2 and 3 with a 2pm matinee September 26. Tickets are $21, $18 concession – email email@example.com or call 0499 954 016 between 9am and 12pm, Monday, Wednesday and Friday (or leave a clear message).
