PRIOR TO WEST END
One of the UK's best-loved stars, Ruth Jones,
makes her highly anticipated return to the stage in this witty,
thought-provoking and bittersweet new play by William Gaminara.
Under the watchful eye of Steven, their choirmaster, Connie,
Ben, Diane and Bruno gather every week in the village hall to
practise their accomplished acapella singing. They are a motley
crew, but whatever their differences, whatever the problems they
may have at home, all are happily bound together in their shared
love of music. Until one day Maggie knocks on the door. . . Soon
she is urging them to enter Talentfest, a potentially life-changing
route to Britain's Got Talent. In the weeks that follow, loyalties
will be tested, tempers will fray and lives will indeed be changed
- but not in the way that any of them had quite anticipated.
The part of Maggie provides a compelling role for Ruth Jones,
best known as the 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,
ran for six series on Sky Television. Her debut novel, Never
Greener, is a Sunday Times number one bestseller.
