Westport Playhouse - “And a Nightingale Sang”

Westport, CT Phone: (203) 227-4177, or toll-free at 1-888-927-7529.

"And a Nightingale Sang" by C. P. Taylor, playing June 9 – 27, is a gently funny and moving portrait of the perseverance and growth of the human spirit during times of personal and historic unrest. As the world rushes toward the brink of war in 1939, the working-class Stott family in Northern England spends its days worrying about popular songs and marriage proposals, priests and pets, getting on and making the best of it. At the center of this domestic chaos is Helen, the plain and longsuffering daughter, who finds herself unexpectedly awakened to the possibilities of love by a soldier on leave. David Kennedy, Playhouse associate artistic director, will helm the production. 7 p.m. curtain for all Tuesday evening performances, changed from the prior 8 p.m. Tuesday starting time. The Playhouse noted that there has been a positive response to Broadway theaters making this switch to 7 p.m. performances over the past few years. The results of a Playhouse audience survey indicated that the change will accommodate a majority of patrons' schedules.
