Queensland Theatre Company's Quartet
What keeps the trio raging against the dying of the light is headlining the annual gala concert marking composer Verdi’s birthday.
After wowing the world, retired opera singers Reggie, Cissy and Wilf have been put out to pasture in a country retirement home. Their chief concerns are scatty Cissy’s wandering memory, flirty Wilf’s obsession with dirty talk, and gentleman Reggie’s ongoing battle to get bloody marmalade with breakfast.
The serenity of their rehearsal room is shattered by the arrival of Jean: diva, celebrated soprano, fourth member of their quartet and Reggie’s ex-wife. Not that he’s thought about their horribly dysfunctional marriage in years, of course. Can these four put aside old grudges and re-team for one more show-stopping finale?
Quartet, also adapted as an acclaimed 2012 film, is a devilishly funny journey into old age told with tenderness, grace, hope – and above all, no self-pity.
