One of the UK's best-loved stars, Ruth Jones, makes a rare stage appearance in this sparkling new comedy. 

When the local acapella group gather in the village hall they have every reason to look forward to their weekly rehearsal.  There's Steven, 60, the Cambridge-educated choirmaster; Diane, his younger wife, who's desperate for a baby; Ben, who was once a professional tennis player married to Diane, who was once a model; and Bruno, a young history teacher, who cares for his mother. They appear to be the friendliest bunch you could imagine. Whatever their differences, whatever the problems they may have at home, all are happily bound together in their shared love of music.  The two hours of laughter and harmonies fly by. Until one day newcomer Maggie knocks on the door and everything changes.....

The part of Maggie in William Gaminara's new play provides a compelling role for Ruth Jones, best known asthe co-writer of the award-winning BBC comedy Gavin & Stacey, in which she starred as Nessa. Other acting credits include Jimmy McGovern's The Street, Little Britain, Saxondale, Tess of the D'Urbervilles, Little Dorrit and Hattie Jacques in Hattie. Her most recent comedy series, Stella, in which she again starred, ran for two series on Sky Television. She is a winner of the Ultimate Funny Woman award at the annual Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of the Year Awards and her debut novel, Never Greener, recently topped the Sunday Times Bestseller List.

William Gaminara is an actor and writer, best known for playing Leo Dalton in Silent Witness from 2002 - 2013 and Dr Richard Locke in The Archers. His plays include According to Hoyle and The Three Lions. Writing for TV includes This Life and The Lakes.

Christopher Luscombe's productions include Love's Labour's Lost, Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night for The RSC, The Merry Wives of Windsor and Nell Gwynn for Shakespeare's Globe and in the West End, Enjoy, When We Are Married and The Madness of George III. He is an associate artist of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
