November 2017 - Quartet by Ronald Harwood

Director Jennifer Steward, Assistant Director/Producer Geofrey Steward

Ronald Harwood's beautifully written play is set in a retirement home for musicians. Residents Reggie, Wilf and Cissy are ex-opera singers who spend their days reminiscing about the past and trying to deal with the indignities of old age. Their routine is disrupted by the arrival of Reggie's ex-wife, Jean, who sang with them in their critically acclaimed performance of the famous quartet from Verdi's Rigoletto. Her appearance stirs up old resentments and unwelcome memories and her integration into the group is difficult. Eventually the four come together to reprise their most notable performance at the grand event held by the residents to celebrate Verdi's birthday.

May 2017 - Party Piece by Richard Harris

Director Miq Kelland, Assistant Director Jennifer Steward

This very funny play was set in the back gardens of feuding neighbours. It was the night of Michael and Roma's fancy-dress house warming party. The evening looked set to be a lively one until a string of hilarious disasters struck, including a distinct lack of guests, a burning garden shed, a marauding Zimmer frame and the prospect of an irate husband on the prowl.
