And a Nightingale Sang
And a Nightingale Sang
By C.P. Taylor.

Cast: 4m., 3w. "The word 'bittersweet' was invented for plays like C.P. Taylor's And a Nightingale Sang," was the lead line in the New York Times review of this show when it played at Lincoln Center. There are seven excellent roles for your cast in this touching and often funny play about the growth of an English family during the war. As the Times critic put it, "The author finds understated farce in the midst of would-be grief." One of the daughters, a plain girl with a limp who doubts that any man will ever find her of interest, is the center of the play, and her wry point of view propels the play which, quoting the Times critic again, "...brings the rambunctious household up to a high comic boil. There are telling glimpses of small lives eked out on the edge of momentous events." To present this play is to involve your cast and audience in a family experience that is immediate, touching, and ultimately universal. Area staging.
