Saddleworth Players are currently taking bookings for the third production in their 2013/2014 season.
Quartet, by Ronald Harwood opens on Saturday 25th January through to Saturday 1st February at The Millgate Arts Centre in Delph starting at 7:30pm each night. Tickets are priced at £8 for Adults and £5 for students.
In this home for retired opera singers, ‘the élite’ gather to pass the time. Consternation ensues when they hear about the latest arrival … the tactless, overbearing Jean, constantly reminding everyone of her diva status, miserable and resentful to find herself reduced to joining the ‘inmates’. Will retirement ever be the same again ?
This is a lovely play, warm, witty, very funny and not without some “tough” moments as it looks at the ageing process in general. It has recently been made into a film starring Pauline Collins, Billy Connolly, Maggie Smith and Tom Courtenay.
The production features a strong cast of well known regulars to the Millgate stage, Ian Perks, Jon Comyn-Platt, Ann Wright and June Holmes. It is directed by Patricia Redshaw.
