Welcome to Quill Theatre!

“Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.” -Macbeth

Friends,

Welcome to our second season as Quill Theatre! Our history is long and a bit complicated:
• It’s the ninth season since the birth of Henley Street Theatre,
• The tenth season since the naming of Richmond Shakespeare,
• And it’s thirty-one years after the founding of the company that began it all: Encore! Theatre.

We are proud to have finally emerged as the Quill, propelled by our mission of creating “Theatre Worth Talking About”, creating work rooted in the genius of William Shakespeare, dedicated to the transforming power of the spoken word, and breathing such life into classic texts that they feel as fresh, surprising, and moving as the day they were created!

In this, our Season of Deep Desire, we’ll bring you the sensual thrill of Dracula; the cravings of “nobodies” to be seen in Assassins; in Top of Bravery, a celebrated star yearning for his dignity; in The Compleat Wrks of Wllm Shkspr, actors giddily aspiring to perform every play of the Bard in a single night; The Heir Apparent hilariously swoons with forbidden love; vows crumple under passion’s demand in Love’s Labours Lost, and in Macbeth, the darkest desires of all lead an honorable man to his doom.

Don’t miss one second of the excitement! It is our deep desire to serve you, our Richmond community, with productions and programs that bring you sparkle, substance, and spice!
