We're an ensemble of actors, directors, and playwrights.
One of 4QT's core missions is to provide opportunities for our ensemble to stretch their wings. Actors have been inspired to write plays, and playwrights have become first-time directors. When we need additional casting, we reach out to performers we know and invite them to come play with us. It's a fun, creative, and supportive community that encourages and celebrates risk-taking.
Our founders Dana Trottier and Jo Walker invite you to share some great new theater!
