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.
