Quotes & Highlights

“The exquisite, balanced direction by Michael Avolio and the meticulous 18-member cast quickly absorb an audience … the exceptional presentation by Quotidian Theatre Company demands a trip to The Writer’s Center for this hypnotic literary binge.” —Sydney-Chanele Dawkins, DC Metro Theater Arts
