The Nightingales

By William Gaminara

Paperback £9.99£7.99

EPUB £9.99£7.99

A motley crew of four friends gather every week in their village hall to practise their a capella singing, under the watchful eye of their choirmaster. Whatever their differences, whatever the problems they may have at home, they are happily bound together in their shared love of music. Until one day Maggie knocks on the door…

Soon she is urging them to enter Talentfest, a potentially life-changing route to Britain's Got Talent. In the weeks that follow, loyalties will be tested, tempers will fray and lives will indeed be changed – but not in the way that any of them had quite anticipated.

Funny, touching and thought-provoking, William Gaminara's play The Nightingales was first seen at the Theatre Royal Bath in 2018, before a UK tour.

Telegraph

'Gaminara's script has spark and pace… the dramatic moments are charged, the comedy tickles and the intrigue is sustained'

Guardian

'Charming... the writing is so polished it shines'
