“Warmly funny and unexpectedly touching, ‘Deuce’ tells the story of retired tennis stars Leona Mullen and Midge Barker, who once made up a championship doubles team. When they meet again at the U.S. Open, the women—now at the end of their lives—find themselves trying to make sense of the professional partnership that brought them to the top of the sports world in their youth.”
These performances are FREE but we encourage our audience to look for QR code donation stations at the theater and to give what you can. Or choose the DONATE Button on our webpage www.qptheater.com
We are committed to keeping our audience and cast safe!
Reservations are REQUIRED. Day-of walk-ups will be turned away.
The QP parking lot will have 6’ x 12’ “pods” available to reserve. Maximum of 4 people to a pod (distancing not required within a pod), and all members of a reservation attest that they are part of a quarantining household or group.
Total audience will be capped at 38 based on the total number of people allowed at any outside event per Governor Baker on August 7, 2020.
