Popular drama group WARTS are in fine voice in their latest production.

Ronald Harwood’s play Quartet focuses on three ageing opera stars, Reggie, Wilf and Cissy, coming to terms with life in a residential home for retired classical singers and musicians.

Their tranquil existence is upset by the sudden arrival of Jean, a one-time leading light of the opera world and also Reggie’s ex.

Jean harbours an embarrassing secret which hampers the other three’s ambition to recreate their famous quartet from Verdi’s Rigoletto at the home’s annual Verdi birthday gala – until they come up with a very modern solution.

The play is an insight into the delights of growing old.

WARTS will perform Quartet from May 21-23 at Botesdale Village Hall starting at 7.30pm each night. Tickets cost £8 or £7 concessions from Rickinghall Newsagents, Redgrave shop or Wortham Post Office or call 01379 687580.
