Peter Quilter

24th - 31st January 2015

Four sets of characters, four crucial moments. Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they’ve never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalise their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute. A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener. Duets is an hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart.
