Trinity Cathedral Pittsburgh
September 14 – October 28, 2018
World Premiere as part of the Pittsburgh International Festival of Firsts

Chatterton spreads out in three dimensions, immersing its mobile audiences in the haunting spaces of Trinity Cathedral Pittsburgh. Adapted from Sir Peter Ackroyd’s award-winning book, its plot takes inspiration from the Romantic Era’s most famous suicide, offering a trifecta of poets in three centuries, colorful London with Dickensian characters bristling with humor, and deep debates on what is real and what is fake in the intertwining worlds of art and commerce. Each performance includes a full intermezzo dinner created by the celebrity chef of the week.

Who beside Quantum is bringing us such theater, or would?

Chris Rawson, theater critic

It's fringe, it's funk, it's fashionable and athletic. Quantum is a total, global theater of mobility without limit.

Michael Lobban, author

Quantum is gutsy, smart, focused and important. Entire worlds are created in tight corners. It's the most interesting theatre happening here.

Kendra Lee, blogger

Quantum should be cherished and admired for stretching beyond the usual borders of what most often characterizes theatre.
