Once they held audiences spellbound in opera houses up and down the country; now they are measuring out their days in a home for retired musicians.
Reggie, Wilf and Cissy are settled and relatively content in their new lives when their peace is disrupted by the arrival of Jean, the biggest diva of them all. We watch as they bicker and reminisce – for they have history!
And then, the biggest challenge of all – the Gala Concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday.
What will they perform? Are their voices up to it? How can they reconcile who they once were with the people they have now become?
Can they recreate past glories?
Funny, poignant and warm-hearted, the play explores the problems of aging while celebrating friendship, the human spirit and the enduring power of art.
This play contains some strong language. Recommended for ages 14 and over.
