The play is 3 hours, and the chairs aren't too comfortable (no arms). The day I went, the theater was about 100 degrees inside (although it was cold outside), and I had to remove my sweater so that I could stand it.

I would never have known about this production but for a promotion on Goldstar. It was a terrific production with strong acting in all the leads. The Quotidian Theatre Company is a terrific little gem.

“Director Michael Avolio deserves great credit for the rich, detailed direction … Quotidian’s _Iceman _is not a feast of woe. Its raw power is brutal and shocking, but it’s also deeply funny and transcendently poignant. You’ll love this play.” —Roy Maurer, DC  Theatre Scene
“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

About the Ticket Supplier: Quotidian Theatre Company

The Quotidian Theatre Company's mission is to present plays in what is known as the natural, realistic, or, more accurately, impressionistic style. This is a theatre without histrionics; the gunshots and car crashes are kept offstage. By providing realistic situations and dialogue, we want to give the audience the impression that they are witnessing events over a backyard fence or through an open window, thus transporting them from detached viewers to involved witnesses.
