by Peter Quilter
This hilarious comedy, set in 1040’s New York, is the story of the worst singer in the world –Florence Foster Jenkins - an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from perfect, known as 'the first lady of the sliding scale'. This delusional and joyously happy woman paid little attention to her critics and, instead, surrounded herself with devoted friends who were almost as eccentric as she was. Based on a true story, the play spins from Florence's charity recitals and extravagant balls, through to her bizarre recording sessions and an ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall.
