The Quill & Quarrel
The Q&Q has produced 5 separate, original shows. We’ve done 31 performances and entertained 688 people. We have an ongoing radio serial and regular musical events. We even published a book “In-World is Our Stage” [ISBN: 978-1490926889].
Our upcoming production of “Wit” by Nargaret Edson is an enormous step forward!
Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Lucille Lortel Award, and the Oppenheimer Award
Margaret Edson’s powerfully imagined Pulitzer Prize–winning play examines what makes life worth living through her exploration of one of existence’s unifying experiences—mortality—while she also probes the vital importance of human relationships. What we as her audience take away from this remarkable drama is a keener sense that, while death is real and unavoidable, our lives are ours to cherish or throw away—a lesson that can be both uplifting and redemptive. As the playwright herself puts it, “The play is not about doctors or even about cancer. It’s about kindness, but it shows arrogance. It’s about compassion, but it shows insensitivity.”
This production is a MILESTONE in the ancient art of live theater. So far as we know this is the VERY FIRST time a broadway show has been licensed for inworld production! The Quill & Quarrel exists to PULL what is a very very old form….into the 21st century and beyond. Just as Second Life expands our community around the world the Q&Q makes a GLOBAL theater a reality. Shakespeare and HIS ‘Globe Theater’….would be proud!
We will be presenting text, voice [via the sim radio stream] and live action.
Quill & Quarrel is excited to premiere this production to benefit the American Cancer Society!
