Conor McPherson's 2006 play, Port Authority, now onstage in Bethesda at Quotidian Theatre, lacks bells, whistles, or coups de theatre. But Thornton Wilder quoted Molière as saying that all he needed for theatre was passion and a platform or two. And that's what's on offer in the well-acted revival of the 90 minute piece.

Under all the pressure of finishing the novel, Myra finds herself having to explain her circumstances to an inquisitive visitor. Quotidian Theatre Company (QTC)'s Ghost-Writer, written by Michael Hollinger and directed by Laura Giannarelli, is a slow-paced, yet unexpected "love" story with a layer of mystery.

by Elliot Lanes - Feb 23, 2018

Last season on Broadway there was a play called Time and the Conways presented at Roundabout Theatre Company. The play hadn't been seen on Broadway since 1937 and after seeing it I understood why. That said, the production had a great look and a very good cast so you could forget about the stodginess of the script. Bethesda, Maryland-based Quotidian Theatre Company's current production of Hobson's Choice bears a resemblance to Time and the Conways because you don't ever see it performed. Unfortunately, the production values – a result of a limited budget – and some questionable casting can't hide all the warts of Harold Brighouse's over 100-year-old script.

BWW Review:  Quotidian Theatre's A COFFIN IN EGYPT Gives Horton Foote's Texas a Memor Photo BWW Review: Quotidian Theatre's A COFFIN IN EGYPT Gives Horton Foote's Texas a Memorably Hard Look
by Andrew White - Nov 21, 2017

If you think the late Texas-born playwright Horton Foote and his fictional home town of Harrison, Texas are little more than genteel curiosities, think again. In Quotidian Theatre's season-opening production of Foote's A Coffin in Egypt, we are confronted with a life that is complex, dark and unapologetic. The cordial but tough-willed Myrtle Bledsoe (played by Quotidean stalwart Jane Squier Bruns) is a well-heeled widow way past the age when she would care what anybody thinks.

In ST NICHOLAS, McPherson's twisted sense of Irish humor, flawlessly executed by Beall, is so watchable because it is so bizarre.

BWW Review: NIGHT SEASONS Embraces the Charmingly Quotidian at Quotidian Theatre Company
by Evann Normandin - Jul 16, 2017

Horton Foote's NIGHT SEASONS, directed by Jack Sbarbori at the Quotidian Theatre Company, examines the nature of a life defined by money and greed, and the notion that perhaps living is the greatest punishment of all. Foote, best known for his 1962 screenplay for To Kill a Mockingbird, delivers a quiet critique of capitalist culture and asks us to consider what "home" means. NIGHT SEASONS places us in Harrison Texas, 1963 on Josie Weems' (Jane Squier Bruns) 93rd birthday, though the play deals in flashbacks and the setting easily slips back and forth through 1923-1963 and the years in between. Josie Weems (Jane Squier Bruns) is the manipulative glue that holds the rambling Weems family together by subtly managing finances and allowing and prohibiting marriages at her discretion.

BWW Reviews: Quotidian's Luminous, Haunting American Premiere of McPherson's THE VEIL
by Andrew White - Jul 23, 2014

Nearly three years after its London opening, Washington's own Quotidian Theatre Company offers us the American premiere of a play that should soon find itself in regular rotation nationwide. Quotidian, with its reputation for understated yet compelling shows, has gone all-out with this production and done Mr. McPherson proud. With a solid, seasoned cast and brilliant period touches in set and costumes, 'The Veil' should be at the top of your list!
