In any list of great eccentrics, the colourful socialite Florence Foster Jenkins must be near the top. Peter Quilter’s affectionate and hysterical play with music follows the true story of the legendary Ms Jenkins as she barnstorms her erratic way, against the odds, to a remarkable sold out solo concert at The Carnegie Hall in 1944, with a programme that showcased her truly unique, oh so unique, vocal talents. Trailing in her flower strewn wake is an equally eccentric troupe of loyal friends, lovers, pianists, maids and critics; and let’s not forget Ricky, the very odd dog. Come and relive that unforgettable night as Florence, bedecked in her extravagant finery, once again, attempts to silence her critics and raise the roof with a voice that she, for one, would call Glorious.
