Duets $12.99

Peter Quilter

Published by Samuel French Ltd

4 Male 4 Female

Four pairs 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 finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails

And Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute

The result is a gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener

Another hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart from the author of Curtain Up! (Respecting Your Piers) and the West End hit Glorious!

"This bittersweet quick-change comedy is streaked with pathos and is effortlessly charming, with each character sketched with verve and skill" ~ Sydney Morning Herald

"Quilter's understanding of human desires and quirks is on show and probed so endearingly ... A warm and funny exploration of love and other bruises" ~ Daily Telegraph

"Compelling, dense, funny and varied ... The language is always beautifully rendered, character-specific, and emotionally satisfying ... Duets is a play to be treasured!" ~ Atlanta Theater Review

Though written to be produced in its entirety with a cast of up to M4,F4, Duets may also be performed as four separate one-act plays, each with a cast of M1,F1
