Perfect for your summer entertainment! "You are guaranteed to leave The Mollusc with a smile on your face and warmth in your heart," raved DC Theatre Scene about QTC's "spot-on" 2008 production of Davies' Edwardian comedy of ill manners. A decade later, QTC restages one of its most popular productions about Dulcie Baxter, the "mollusc," who has an unusual, yet hilarious affliction. Jack Sbarbori, who directed and designed the set for the acclaimed 2008 production, returns for the remount.

"...Aiding the fabulous cast is a smart, carefully decorated set (designed by Jack Sbarbori) that sets a wonderful tone and is both visually and functionally satisfying. Stephanie Mumfort's costumes set the time period and characters' personalities (and, as a fan of vintage clothing, made me immediately want to steal them). Sbarbori's tight direction, assisted by stage manager Lynda Bruce, carried the small cast and single set far beyond its physical barriers; the show never feels too small or too restricted, but instead hits the perfect dynamic notes for audience enjoyment and artistic delivery."

"...This is a very well-done piece and quietly gets under the skin—you want to see Miss Roberts break free and Mr and Mrs. Baxter awaken from the somnambulance that her very nature has trapped them in. It’s a lovely journey."

"...Kanarek's portrayal of the mollusk of the title however, is a problematic jumble of cliches. She plays the role in the overdrawn, languorously stylized manner of someone playing at farce, just affected enough to be out of tone with the rest of the composed production, but not nearly exclamatory enough to be obvious."
