7:30 PM Italian Film: Indivisibili (Indivisable) Identical twins Dasy and Viola appear to have it all: they're beautiful and gifted with captivating singing voices. They also happen to be conjoined at the hip, which is shamelessly exploited by their parents and close friends for money in the suburbs of Naples. Their lives turn upside-down when Dasy falls in love and they discover that they can be separated. Balancing the beautiful and the perverse with poise and featuring a beguiling soundtrack by Enzo Avitabile, Edoardo De Angelis' new feature is a moving, eccentric fable about the pains of growing up.

8:00 PM Stage: Quartet Lifelong friends Wilf and Reggie, together with former colleague, Cissy, are residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. Every year on Giuseppe Verdi's birthday, the residents unite to give a concert to raise funds for their home. But when Jean Horton, a former Grande Dame of the opera who has fallen on hard times, who also happens to be Reggie's ex-wife and the fourth and most celebrated member of their former quartet, unexpectedly moves into the home, the plans for this year's concert begin to unravel. As old grudges threaten to undermine past glories and theatrical temperaments wreak havoc with the rehearsal schedule, it becomes apparent that having four of the finest singers in English operatic history under one roof is no guarantee that the show will go on. This is a wickedly comic play - touching and poignant - about art, aging and how the human spirit remains undimmed.
