Lunch & Listen - Wednesday matinee

A quartet of illustrious actors stars in this funny, touching and poignant play which explores the eccentricities of age, art and the human spirit before reaching a triumphant finale. On a summer’s day in a home for retired musicians, three old friends are joking and reminiscing. Cecily, Wilfred and Reginald were once the brightest stars of the opera world and now they are looking forward to performing the quartet from Rigoletto to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. But their tranquillity is about to be shattered by a surprise new arrival. Not only is Jean still something of a diva – she used to be married to Reggie!
