Quartet at The Coach House Theatre

April 11th - April 13th

 

STAC, The Swan Theatre Amateur Company presents

Quartet

by Ronald Harwood

This charming, funny and poignant play is about three old friends: Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred, who are joking and reminiscing and making the most of ageing in a retirement home for opera singers. Each year, on October 10th, they put on a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. The three will be performing together. However, their peace is destroyed with the arrival of Jean, an old friend of theirs who worked successfully on a Quartet with them many years ago. Painful memories are brought to the surface, particularly for Reg, who had a disastrous marriage to Jean. She disrupts their equilibrium.

Quartet” is a beautiful and delightful play that is full of wicked and saucy humour about growing old and about art. It is a play of hope and confidence for people who in their retirement fear they may no longer have much to offer.

It is a play that shows that old people still have a zest for life and still have the same desires, needs and worries as they did when they were young.

Director Jane Lush
