Edgy, funny, and occasionally sinister, Parlour Song explores the mysteries beneath the manicured surface of a suburban housing tract, where all is not well in the lives of two friendly couples.
"The lost-in-thesuburbs themes in this tragicomic play have been visited before, but resonate in this fresh telling. See it before it disappears." -- Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

A mystery, a ghost story, a memory play… At three different periods in time, three Americans find themselves alone in the same hotel room overlooking Rome’s Spanish Steps: June, a young tour guide of the city’s ancient ruins; Lilian, her wealthy and elegant mother; and Nathan, a rumpled university economist who was best friend of Lilian’s deceased husband - another economist, a brilliant and famous one. Madagascar is the haunting story of a mysterious disappearance that changes these three lives forever.

Pantagleize is a wild rumination on revolution. Quantum’s Jay Ball freely adapts Michel de Ghelderode's 1931 avant garde play. Our Pantagleize is a take on beat poet Allen Ginsberg, off to be King of the May in Prague, but he’s taken up in alternating turns by a quirky guide, a sexy spy, and a nasty dictator. As in the original, our hero unwittingly starts a revolution by saying the secret password, producing a darkly humorous attack on militarism.
