‘Quartet’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  Quartet

Playwright:  Ken Harwood

Genre:  Comedy, but not a musical

Synopsis:  The story takes place in a home for retired musicians. It focuses on three old friends: opera singers. Their peace is destroyed with the arrival of Jean, an old friend of theirs who worked successfully with them on a Quartet many years ago. The problem is, Jean is not very nice and the ex wife of one of the old friends.

What the Critics Said:

  • Writing for The Independent, Paul Taylor described the play as “an unashamed – no, shameless – vehicle for four feisty old troupers whose task is to make us laugh a little, sigh a little and cry a little as they take us into the bittersweet world of facing up to age and mortality.”
  • Reviewing the play for The Spectator, Sheridan Morley concluded: “Harwood seems to have set out with something sad to say about the ravages of age on a profession which largely depends on staying young, but then to have been sidetracked into a sort of Three Tenors concert celebration without the Three Tenors

Director: Kenneth Bradley Johnson
