The Play
 
The setting is a retirement home for musicians. We see three elderly former opera-singers who often worked together. Reginald, is quietly reading a serious book, but jovial Wilfred is chuckling about sex as he regards Cissy, who is lying back and listening to music through her headphones. They are about to be joined by newcomer Jean, who was a major star in her day and to whom Reginald was once unhappily married.

Is there any chance that these four will ever sing together again? A gala concert is about to take place at the retirement home to celebrate Verdi’s birthday. Three of the four are keen to recreate the third act quartet from Rigoletto and one is not.

This play will make you feel - happy, sad, compassionate, and thoughtful. However, it ends with the uplifting realisation that the body might be fading, but the spirit never dies.
