|By Ronald Harwood|
Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred are in a home for retired opera singers. Each year, on 10 October, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at their home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva and refuses to sing. But the show must go on ... This gentle expose of the debilitating effects of old age set against the never fading passions of youth is both funny and poignant by turns. A classic from Ronald Harwood’s repertoire of well observed comedies of human nature, it promises to delight audience members and leave them with a glow in their hearts.
