The Birds by Conor McPherson

April 25 - May 25, 2014

Brian Friel’s landmark play Faith Healer has had a profound effect on playwrights throughout the world. The title character, Frank Hardy, is an Irish faith healer who travels through England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales with his spouse Grace and his Cockney manager Teddy, performing his "gift," which sometimes fails him. Through a series of monologues, the audience learns the details of a man whose life is fraught with deception and self-denial, and the effect on those most loyal to him.

"One of those rare works of art audiences are destined to recall as a deeply personal experience. A powerful piece of writing." - The New York Times



Featuring Christopher Henley, Laura Russell, & Nick Sampson. Directed by Laura Giannarelli

Praise for The Iceman Cometh

"A gut-wrenching soul search of a play, a masterpiece that asks if the value of truth is worth the pain that can accompany it... The exquisite, balanced direction by Michael Avolio and the meticulous 18-member cast quickly absorb an audience into the tragedy of men’s lies and far-reaching dreams. The cumulative power of O’Neill’s play and the exceptional presentation by Quotidian Theatre Company demands a trip to The Writer’s Center for this hypnotic literary binge."

"The great satisfaction of viewing Quotidian’s production lies in the sheer scale of detail and characterization of these wonderful performances and soaking in O’Neill’s soaring, smash-mouth script. Director Michael Avolio deserves great credit for the rich, detailed direction of a fantastic, no holds-barred ensemble. Don Slater’s painterly lighting design fittingly sculpts compositions reminiscent of the Ashcan School or Hopper’s alienated loners. 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." Read the full review.

The VeilJuly 18 - August 17, 2014

The Veil
Conor McPherson

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

...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
