Past Productions


by Ronald Harwood

The Cast

One time opera singers Reg, Cissy and Wilfred live in a sheltered home for retired musicians. Their lives are spent in pleasant contemplation of their past glories on the operatic stage. One day their placid and predictable lives are disturbed by the arrival of Jean, Reg's ex wife and infamous diva of yesterdays operatic world. Will this once celebrated soprano supress her enormous vanity to become just another resident? Will she, like all the other residents, participate in the traditional annual celebration concert for Vedi's birthday?
Ronald Harwood draws the characters with great humour and affection as they struggle to relive the past and recapture some fleeting semblance of the glory they once enjoyed.
