San Diego's Old Globe Theatre has announced the cast and creative team for its production of Ronald Harwood's comedy Quartet. The play will run July 25–August 24 in the Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Richard Seer (Other Desert Cities) directs.

Quartet follows three former opera singers, Reginald, Cecily, and Wilfred, leading a harmonious existence at a home for retired musicians until Reginald's ex-wife, grande dame Jean Horton, arrives. As long-ago grudges surface and old scores are settled, the quartet heads back into the rehearsal room for one final encore.

The acting company includes Roger Forbes (Wilfred Bond), Robert Foxworth (Reginald Paget), Elizabeth Franz (Jean Horton), and Jill Tanner (Cecily Robson).

The creative team includes Globe Associate Artist Ralph Funicello (scenic design), Charlotte Devaux (costume design), York Kennedy (lighting design), Christopher R. Walker (sound design), Nicolas Reveles (opera consultant), and Annette Yé (stage manager).
