After firing one of their founding members due to his erratic behavior, a world-class string quartet takes a chance on a gifted but relatively inexperienced young woman. With only a few days to rehearse a grueling Beethoven masterpiece, the four struggle to prepare their highest-profile performance ever — a televised ceremony at the White House. Their rehearsal room becomes a pressure-cooker as passions rise, personalities clash, and the players are forced to confront the ephemeral nature of their life’s work.
Eric Walby of Somerset is the director, and Faith Dowgin of Spotswood is the producer.
Appearing onstage are Patrick Andrae, Jamesburg; Brian Craig, Dunellen; Shawna Lagan, Kenilworth, Jeff Maschi, Milltown; and David Romankow, Gillette.
Performances will be 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 15-Nov. 30, with a matinee 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1. The theater is located at 416 Victoria Ave., Piscataway. A wine and cheese reception will follow the opening night performance.
