For its 2019 season, Quotidian will offer audiences the opportunity to see two plays which they may have missed during their runs earlier in the area.
The season will open with Michael Hollinger’s Ghost-Writer. The novelist Franklin Woolsey is accomplished, successful and, unfortunately, dead. His secretary, however, continues to take dictation. The work is beautiful, but she is accused of fraud. Jayne Blanchard, reviewing a 2013 production at MetroStage for DC Theatre Scene, called it “a tender treatise on unspoken affection, the writing process and what we remember and what we wish was so.” Featuring Steve LaRocque, Stephanie Mumford and Carol Spring, Ghost-Writer will be directed by Laura Giannarelli. From April 5-30, 2019.
Ghost-Writer playwright Michael Hollinger will appear for a talkback with Laura Giannarelli and the cast after the 2pm matinee on Sunday, April 14.
Jack Sbarbori will direct a reprise of The Mollusc, a 1908 farce first produced by Quotidian 100 years later. In it are an extremely domineering woman and her docile husband and employee. Her brother arrives from making his fortune in Colorado and decides to set the household to rights. “The Mollusc…offers a…gradual and more satisfying set of pleasures to the audiences who will have the patience to let the work build. You are guaranteed to leave The Mollusc with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart,” Steven McKnight said for DC Theatre Scene. The play will feature Marnie Karanek, Craig Houk, Brendan Murray, and Emily Gilson, and run from July 12 to August 4 of this year.
