Quantum Frolic is a new theatre company, launched by actors and friends Jerome Dowling & David Shears. They met in the summer of 2016 when both acting in the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival. A chance conversation about interpreting Shakespeare grew into a wider discussion about the stories we hear and the perspectives they are told from. Over the next year David and Jerome reached a conclusion. They wanted to start a company to tell new stories and give a dramatic voice to those who are often overlooked. To provide a platform for new writing and new imaginings of classic stories. After a long gestation, Quantum Frolic was born.
Quantum Frolic Presents: is the debut show for the company. As a scratch night, it provides them with an excellent platform to promote new writing, to foster creative relationships and to begin to build a following. They are pleased and proud to share some exciting new work. They are delighted with the standard of creatives coming together to make an evening of entertaining theatre. The long-term ambition is to create something akin to a rep company, with a focus on devised, biographical and verbatim theatre.
As a venue for fringe theatre the Old Red Lion has an excellent reputation. Jerome has enjoyed performing there and David has witnessed some remarkable theatre. QF are very pleased to have such an intimate and adaptable space for QFP.
The event promises to provoke thought, emotion and reaction. There will be six short extracts of shows split by a quick interval. Pieces range from the Pinteresque and darkly comedic, to scathingly relatable social commentary. But don’t just take their word for it. Come down on the evening of Sunday 1st October. Grab a drink, sit back and relax. Enjoy an evening of new writing. Tell us what you think of the pieces on the feedback forms provided.
Quantum Frolic look forward to seeing you there!
