In the course of one night we meet a hard drinking tycoon who is considering buying a Victorian country house thought to be a former bordello and haunted by a deceased prostitute!  There is his solicitor who ends up in bed with his wife, her brother and the brother’s fiancé, who gets stuck in a closet and tries to figure out whether to run  or not to run away. We know you will not want to run away from this hilarious comedy!


NOVEMBER  23, 24, 25, 29, 39 and DECEMBER 1 2018

QP’s holiday tradition will continue this year with a mix of memories from the last six seasons of our annual New Holiday Play Festival, and a dash of new plays to spice it up!  It is great fun and a perfect way to kick off the holidays!

TERRA NOVA ~ an extraordinary story and an inventive play

Written by Ted Tally 

Directed by Michele Aguillon

JANUARY 25, 26 and FEBRUARY 1, 2, 3, 8, 9 2019

The play takes us to the ill-fated Antarctic expedition of Robert Falcon Scott, blending in flashbacks of Scott and the young wife he left behind in England, as well as glimpses of his Norwegian rival Ronald Amundsen, whose party beat Scott to the South Pole. It is an incredible story drawn from his journals and letters that capture the chilling intensity of the bravery and heroism of Scott and his men.

 MOTHERS AND SONS ~ 2014 Tony Nominee for Best Play

Written by Terrance McNally

Directed by David Berti

MARCH 22, 23, 29, 30, 31 and APRIL 5, 6 2019

A powerful, funny and touching play that explores our evolving understanding of what it means to be a family. A mother trying to move on has to look back at what her son’s life would have been. NBC’s said “McNally captures a moment of hope and promise …,” a feeling we all need.

FUNNY MONEY ~ a great farce by one of the masters!

Written by Ray Cooney

Directed by Donna Corbett

MAY 17, 18, 19, 23, 24, 31 and JUNE 1 2019

A simple birthday dinner of friends turns into a night of confusion and misdirection with a number of briefcases that all look the same but contain very different items! And everyone wants just one of them including “Mr. Brerfcurse,” who puts this frenetic farce into high gear!

You meet the love of your life, your destiny, your one true soulmate. Vows are exchanged and happily ever after is laid out before you. So what happens when that soul reveals itself to be someone entirely different that you thought they’d be? In ‘Prelude To A Kiss,’ Craig Lucus’ charming romantic comedy with a twist, a simple kiss turns the worlds of three people completely upside down, and the question of who we love and what that really means is put to the ultimate test.
