Lettice & Lovage

"The title role is taken by the lovely actress Jane Squier Bruns, as Lettice Douffet, delivering a performance filled with grace and delicacy."  Read the full review.
- Jeffrey Walker, DC Theatre Scene

"Quotidian’s production reminds us that Shaffer, although known to most audiences for his darker works Equus and Amadeus, has a truly comedic side. Under the able direction of Louis Pangaro, it is a true pleasure to rediscover this dramatist’s later work."  Read the full review.

- Andrew White, Maryland Theatre Guide

"The cast are given wonderful dialogue to celebrate and they are up for the task. Jane Squire Bruns as Miss Lettice Douffet is the heart of the production. ...Leah Mazade as Lotte delivers a multidimensional and complicated character."  Read the full review.

- Pamela Roberts, Broadway World

""Ms. Bruns, a gifted actress, has an elegant, almost frail demeanor, well suited to her role. Leah Mazade, as Miss Schoen, creates a woman who seems ordinary on the surface, but reveals a surprisingly explosive history of her own. ...Elizabeth Darby, as Miss Schoen’s overzealous assistant, Miss Framer, has a sure comic touch, and John Decker, as the lawyer Bardolph who comes to Lettice’s aid in her hour of need, deftly presents a well-meaning and exceptionally histrionic member of his profession."  Read the full review.

- Sophia Howes, DC Metro Arts

"Jane Squire Bruns gives a formidable and heartfelt turn as the eccentric Englishwoman who can’t endure the 'mere,' and has adopted her late mother’s motto as her own: 'Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!"  Read the full review.

This Lime Tree Bower
Conor McPherson

It is the off-season at a coastal chipper north of Dublin as three young men recall recent events including a false accusation, a career embarrassment, and a bold act of retribution.  McPherson’s early jewel combines the drama, comedy, and quotidian details which provide the audience with his deep insight into the human condition. “...No sound is dissonant which tells of life.”  - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Featuring Michael Avolio, David Mavricos, and Chris Stinson
Director - Jack Sbarbori

...for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs. -- George Elliot Middlemarch

The Quotidian Theatre Company was formed in 1998 with the goal of producing plays by Anton Chekhov, Horton Foote, and other realistic or impressionistic writers, in the spare, understated style intended by the playwrights. Learn more about Quotidian.
