Co-producers Jenny Topper and Theatre Royal Bath Productions have announced that comedy star Ruth Jones will make a very rare stage appearance to star in William Gaminara‘s new comedy, The Nightingales, which will open in Bath on 31 October 2018 and tour to Cambridge, Cardiff, Chichester and Malvern prior to a West End transfer.
The production will be directed by Christopher Luscombe.
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; Ben, who was once a professional tennis player married to Connie, who was once a model; and Bruno, a young history teacher, who cares for his mother. The two hours of laughter and harmonies fly by. Until one day newcomer Maggie knocks on the door and everything changes.
