The VeilJuly 18 - August 17, 2014

Quotidian is pleased to present the U.S. premiere of Conor McPherson's The Veil, which debuted in 2011 at London’s National Theatre. Set in a haunted mansion in rural Ireland in 1822, surrounded by a restive, starving populace, The Veil weaves Ireland’s troubled colonial history into a transfixing story about the search for love, the transcendental, and the circularity of time. "An atmospheric and haunting tale of lost souls." - Evening Standard

"Imagine a Chekhov play full of ghosts and things that go bump in the night and you will get some idea of Conor McPherson's strange and fitfully entertaining drama The Veil." – The Telegraph

Featuring Christine Alexander, Michael Avolio, Jane Squier Bruns, John Decker, Steve LaRocque, Chelsea Mayo, Stephanie Mumford, and Michele Osherow

Directed by Jack Sbarbori

"Under director Laura Giannarelli’s hand, actors Christopher Henley, Laura Russell and Nick Sampson do right by Friel’s funny, tragic tale."  Read the full review.

"For an evening of exceptional acting and absorbing, evocative writing held together with brilliant directing, do not miss Quotidian Theatre’s Faith Healer."  Read the full review.
- by David Friscic, DC Metro Theater Arts

"Quotidian Theatre's production of Brian Friel's Faith Healer features excellent acting and direction (the latter by Laura Giannarelli), a top-notch set, and costumes that are perfectly suited to the personality of each character and the time period."  Read the full review.

"As Frank, Christopher Henley seems to have one foot in this world and one in the next much of the time... His is a strong performance in a difficult role."  Read the full review.

- Mark Dewey, DC Theatre Scene

"Director and Washington theatrical veteran Laura Giannarelli’s hand is obvious in the sparseness of this production. Even with the subtly ecclesiastical triptych set by Set/Props Designer Jack Sbarbori, a respect for Friel’s simple, human, and naturalistic style dominates as each character narrates his or her deepest thoughts and encounters without ceremony. With period and character appropriate costumes by Stephanie Mumford, Faith Healer promises a tragic and contemplative experience, one to be considered carefully."  Read the full review.

...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
