termiNATION is an in-process movement-based solo work investigating life and death through the lens of a pregnant war widow. Inspired by an adolescence and early adulthood steeped in the events of post-9/11 and the recent inauguration of Donald Trump, this piece explores the role women have to play as we carry this new era of politics to term. In the maelstrom of American culture, 21st-century colonialism and the cyclical blind faith to trust the institution, termiNATION looks to use the last sixteen years worth of politics, perspective and war to ask ourselves what kind of world we want to create for our children.

With just 30 days between idea and execution, Off the Quill brings you Completely Hollywood, a tribute to all things Cinema. The frenetic comedy from the team that brought you the award winning Complete Works of Shakespeare (abridged) [revised] has the actors tackling 186 films, plus a screen mashup of their own, in just 90 minutes.

Off the Quill was founded by four like-minded friends (Patrick Mullen, Katie Wanschura, Leanne Dinverno, and J. Peter Langsdorf) who wanted to create a different kind of theater experience. One that blends many different mediums, like stage combat, dance, clowning, physicality, to present truly compelling stories to the audience. We aim to take classic and modern stories and make them our own, either by writing new material or presenting them in innovative ways.

Tickets: $20 General Admission, $17 Student, Senior or Veteran. Click here.
