The Nightingales starring Ruth Jones
December 3rd - December 8th
A New Comedy by WILLIAM GAMINARA
Directed by CHRISTOPHER LUSCOMBE
One of the UK’s best-loved stars, Ruth Jones, makes a rare stage appearance in this sparkling new comedy.
When the local acapella group gather in the village hall they have every reason to look forward to their weekly rehearsal. There’s Steven, 60, the Cambridge-educated choirmaster; Diane, his younger wife, who’s desperate for a baby; Ben, who was once a professional tennis player married to Diane, who was once a model; and Bruno, a young history teacher, who cares for his mother. They appear to be the friendliest bunch you could imagine. Whatever their differences, whatever the problems they may have at home, all are happily bound together in their shared love of music. The two hours of laughter and harmonies fly by. Until one day newcomer Maggie knocks on the door and everything changes …
The part of Maggie provides a compelling role for Ruth Jones, best known as the co-writer of the award-winning BBC comedy Gavin & Stacey, in which she starred as Nessa. William Gaminara is an actor and writer, best known for playing Leo Dalton in Silent Witness from 2002 – 2013 and Dr Richard Locke in The Archers.
