About the play

A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener… by the author of the Broadway smash End of the Rainbow and the West End hit Glorious!

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 finalize their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; 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.

Duets is a hilarious tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart.

“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

“This bittersweet comedy is streaked with pathos and is effortlessly charming, with each character sketched with verve and skill.”  –  Sydney Morning Herald

“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
