As Quintessence Theatre Group works to establish a resident repertory ensemble, Quintessence regulars Khris Davis and John Williams will lead this nine actor repertory ensemble. Mr. Davis, who played the title role in Quintessence’s acclaimed Othello this past fall, Haemon in Antigone, and Lorenzo in The Merchant of Venice, will play Bluntschli in Arms and the Man. Mr. Williams, previously seen as the Prologue in Antigone and Sganarelle in Don Juan, will play the title role in The Misanthrope. Quintessence also welcomes back ensemble favorites Sean Close (Roderigo in Othello) and Daniel Fredrick (the titular role in The Diary of a Madman, Cassio in Othello).

They are joined by Mattie Hawkinson* in her Quintessence and Philadelphia debut as Louka in Arms and the Man and American film actress Jennifer in The Misanthrope. Also making their Quintessence debuts are Christopher Burke* (as Sergius and Julian), Sonja Field (as Raina and Ellen), and Philadelphia favorites Ames Adamson* (as Major Petkoff and Alex) and Kittson O’Neill* (as Catherine and Marcia).

The artistic team includes director Alexander Burns, costume designer Jane Casanave, lighting designer David Sexton, dialect coach Hazel Bowers, and SAFD Fight Master Ian Rose.
