QP Announces 2014- 2015 Season
What better way to survive this year’s mid-term elections than seeing a political satire by David Mamet?
Join Director Chip Sheeran and his cast that includes Jason Myatt, Shayne Doherty, Kristen Dattoli, Robert Hallisey and Lou Fuoco in this hilarious take on Presidental Elections!
Production Dates October 10, 11, 17, 18, 19, 24 & 25, 2014
David Mamet’s Oval Office satire depicts one day in the life of a beleaguered American commander-in-chief. It’s November in a Presidential election year and incumbent Charles Smith’s chances for re-election are looking grim. Approval ratings are down, his money’s running out and nuclear war might be imminent. With Mamet’s characteristic no-holds-barred style, November is a scathingly hilarious take on the state of American politics today and the lengths to which people will go to win.
Tickets are $19 Regular and $18 Senior/Student

Alan Ayckbourn’s comedic foray into science-fiction drops us into a not-too-distant future where actors have been replaced by robotic “actoids” and where the art of comedy has been lost. That is until an aspiring young writer with a love of the classics discovers a malfunctioning actoid that has developed a sense of humor all her own. As the duo attempt to ignite their respective TV careers, they soon find themselves challenging the theory that the ability to laugh – as well as the ability to fall in love – is what differentiates computers from their human creators.
