Curtain Up!

By Peter Quilter

Curtain Up! tells the story of five women – the daughter, ex-wife, second wife, mother and secretary of deceased owner Michael – who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and their plans to bring it back to life again.

All manner of fund-raising schemes are considered as they try to put their differences aside to make the theatre a success. Their most ambitious scheme is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star (Liza Minnelli) who agrees to appear for no fee!

However, their plans go awry and it's a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. A fast-paced and very funny comedy.
