Quartet

Performed from Mon 26 Feb — Sat 3 Mar


Mark Goucher and David Ian present
A Cheltenham Everyman Theatre Production

Paul Nicholas (The Real Marigold Hotel, Just Good Friends, EastEnders) Wendi Peters (Coronation Street, Oh What A Lovely War), Sue Holderness (Only Fools and Horses, The Green Green Grass) and Jeff Rawle (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Drop the Dead Donkey) star in a brand-new revival of the bitter-sweet comedy Quartet.

Quartet is the charming tale of four ageing opera singers. Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred reside in a magnificent retirement home in Kent, where the rumour circling the halls is that the home will soon play host to a new resident, and word is it’s a star. When Jean arrives old rivalries resurface, secrets are revealed and chaos unfolds, but in true theatrical tradition – the show must go on. A celebration of the twilight years and the hilarity of growing old disgracefully!

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 sold-out West End run. Produced by the team behind Jeeves & Wooster, The Miser, The Dresser and the smash-hit musical The Bodyguard.

Reviews of Quartet

What the press say


“Thoroughly entertaining and faultless from start to the most glorious operatic finish.”

Gloucestershire Echo

“A finely executed and well-judged performance”

StageTalk Magazine

“A strongly cast… look at growing old and the nature of art… All four are played with a telling combination of operatic bravura and vulnerability, as they struggle to remain loyal to their motto NSP (no self-pity).”

The Stage

What the public say

This star cast proved their worth in this wonderful witty performance, a truly memorable show which we all enjoyed immensely. It was a privilege to see top class actors and enjoy the entertainment they gave at the Wolsey. Big thank you to all of the cast for the laughter and lessons in growing old disgracefully!!!
