Peter Parnell's QED Completes Lantern Theater Company's 2014-15 Season

Lantern Theater Company announces the addition of QED by Peter Parnell to its 2014/15 mainstage season, completing a line-up that also includes Tom Stoppard's theatrical masterpiece Arcadia, John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning Doubt: A Parable, William Shakespeare's classic comedy of the sexes The Taming of the Shrew, and Steven Canny and John Nicholson's inventive and brilliantly farcical adaptation of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Hound of the Baskervilles.

On stage November 20 - December 14, 2014, QED is inspired by the writings of Richard Feynman and Ralph Leighton's Tuva or Bust! Richard Feynman was one of the most curious and colorful personalities of the 20th century. To his students, he was a beloved professor, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, flirt, and unforgettable inspiration. Barrymore Award-winner Peter DeLaurier reprises his role from the Lantern's original 2006 production, capturing Feyman's remarkable spirit in a memorable journey through the greatest mysteries of science and human experience. QED also stars young actress Clare Mahoney in her Lantern debut.

"Richard Feynman is a transformational character in the history of science," says Lantern Theater Company Artistic Director Charles McMahon. "With Feynman, you get not only the cold abstractions that are the product of scientific inquiry but the passionate and paradoxical process by which these formulas are created. He reminds us that science is a human affair where personality is part of the equation. QED played to sold out house and critical acclaim back in 2006, and we are thrilled to finally have an opportunity to revisit this great play with an expanded performance run."

Lantern Theater Company is located at St. Stephen's Theater at 10th & Ludlow Streets in Center City Philadelphia.
