A bitter-sweet comedy about life-long friendships and growing old disgracefully. Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred live in a home for retired musicians.

Each year, on October 10, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday and they are busy preparing to take part.

Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their plans. But the show must go on.
