‘This Lime Tree Bower’ at Quotidian Theatre Company

The Irish are legendary storytellers, and Conor McPherson’s play, one of his earliest, is a rollicking but thought-provoking tale of adventurous misadventure, told as a rotating round (and refreshed and lubricated by rounds) in a coastal “chipper” north of Dublin by two young brothers and their older—but not wiser—friend. As we enter, a young woman’s voice […]

Quotidian Theatre Company Presents Eugene O’Neill’s Visionary Classic ‘The Iceman Cometh’ by Michael Avolio

‘A Walk in the Woods’ at Quotidian Theatre by Jessica Vaughan
