April 4 – May 4, 2008
An Edwardian comedy of ill manners.
The title character, Dulcie Baxter, has an unusual yet hilarious affliction in this delightful farce which first hit the London stage in 1907.
Directed by: Jack Sbarbori
Featuring: Steve Beall, John Decker, Laura Russell and Malinda Smith
Marvelous Mollusc. Quotidian has again succeeded in unearthing a rarely produced little gem. Their production of The Mollusc is the most charming theatrical surprise of the spring.

It is easy to surrender to the charms of The Mollusc, a gentle and entertaining work that receives a spot-on production by the Quotidian Theatre Company.
Malinda Smith’s performance… (is) one of the most entertaining comedic performances of the year. John Decker is perfectly cast… Steve Beall’s performance drives the story… Laura (Russell) makes a suitably charming and demure Miss Roberts.
You are guaranteed to leave The Mollusc with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart.
