The charming bitter-sweet comedy by Oscar winning playwright Ronald Harwood about four ageing opera singers, Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred who reside in a magnificent retirement home in Kent. The rumour going around is that the home is to welcome a new resident who is a star in the world of opera. Jean arrives and soon old rivalries resurface, secrets are revealed and chaos unfolds. This is a celebration of the twilight years and the hilarity of growing old disgracefully. The play stars Paul Nicholas (The Real Marigold Hotel, Just Good Friends), Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, O What a Lovely War), Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, The Green Green Grass) and Jeff Rawles (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Drop the Dead Donkey).

"Ronald Harwood's play is laugh out loud funny with moments that bring a lump to the throat". Daily Telegraph
