Paul Nicholas, Sue Holderness, Wendi Peters, and Jeff Rawle
star in charming comedy by Ronald Horwood
Paul Nicholas (The Real Marigold Hotel, Just Good Friends and EastEnders), Wendi Peters (Coronation Street and Oh What A Lovely War), Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses and The Green Green Grass) and Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Drop the Dead Donkey) will star in Quartet, coming to Richmond Theatre on Mon 9 – Sat 14 April. Press are invited to attend for review on Monday 9 April at 7.30pm.
Quartet is the charming tale of a group of ageing opera singers. Cecily (Wendi Peters), Reggie (Jeff Rawle) and Wilfred (Paul Nicholas) reside in a magnificent retirement home in Kent. The rumour circling the halls is that the home is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is it’s a star. Jean (Sue Holderness) arrives and old rivalries resurface, secrets are revealed and chaos unfolds, but in true theatrical tradition – the show must go on.
Oscar-winning writer Sir Ronald Harwood has been nominated for several Tony and Olivier Awards in a long and distinguished career. His play The Dresser, recently completed a highly successful West End run and tour.
Mark Goucher said: “After The Dresser I wanted to tour another of Ronald Harwood’s plays and in my new role at Cheltenham, I felt that Quartet would be a perfect show for this theatre to produce and then tour. I am delighted that I will be working with David Ian on this production.”
Quartet is directed by Peter Rowe, designed by Phil R Daniels and Charles Cusick Smith.
