The True Story of Florence Foster Jenkins, The worst singer in the world
By Peter QuilterIn
1940’s New York, the performer who everyone
wanted to see live was Florence Foster Jenkins,
an enthusiastic soprano whose pitch was far from
perfect. Known as ‘the first lady of the sliding
scale’, she warbled and screeched her way
through the evening to an audience who mostly
fell about with laughter. But this delusional and
joyously happy woman paid little attention to her
critics, instead she was surrounded by a circle of
devoted friends who were almost as eccentric
as she was.
Based upon a true story, the play spins from
Florence’s charity recitals and extravagant balls,
through to her bizarre recording sessions and
ultimate triumph at Carnegie Hall in a hilarious
and heart-warming comedy.
