The St. Louis Critics are Raving about “Quills” by Doug Wright!

“…Doug Wright’s strange and thoughtful play about the Marquis de Sade…is related with unstinting verve.”

“Theatergoers at “Quills” may be pleased to discover how much they laugh at something that takes place, after all, in an 18th-century madhouse.”
Judith Newmark – St. Louis Post Dispatch, August 4th, 2014

“The most exciting theatre in town! A brilliant production!”
Bob Wilcox & Jerry Kowarsky – Two on the Aisle, August 7th, 2014

“Brooke Edwards directs the splendid rendition being performed by Max & Louie Productions in its St. Louis Premiere. It’s guaranteed to make an audience think.”
“Max & Louie’s Quills is as beguiling and challenging as it is sobering.”

Mark Bretz – Ladue News, August 5th, 2014

“The Doug Wright script…despite the subject matter, can be quite funny, ranging from broad to sly.”

“Ted Gregory (The Marquis de Sade)…hypnotizing as a snake, stalks and seduces and spews his mania in all sorts of ways. It’s a gripping performance.”

“Not for the easy or even semi-easily offended, but very worthwhile theatre.”
Ann Lemons Pollack – St. Louis Eats and Drinks, August 4th, 2014

“The institutional, 1800’s-era stone-walled set, by set designer Dunsi Dai, is gorgeously dressed with period style furniture and lovely feathered quills…”
“Costume designer Cyndi Lohrmann and lighting designer Maureen Berry beautifully recreate the Marquis’ obsession in their designs.”

Tina Farmer – KDHX, August 5th, 2014

“…from the harpsichord music that greets you to the sound of the inmates relaying Sade’s latest work, Amanda Werre’s sound design is subtle but effective.”
“…masterfully directed by Brooke Edwards with robust performances and stylish creative contributions.”
“Don’t miss this one.”

Andrea – St. Louis Theatre Snob, August 4th, 2014

“As the Marquis, Ted Gregory is simply mind-boggling- shocking, hilarious, giddy, and utterly grotesque – in a stylish, delightful sort of way that makes him even more dangerous…”
Richard Green – Talkin’ Broadway, August 5th, 2014

“The storytelling is enhanced especially in the remarkable performances of the uniformly excellent cast…”
“Kudos to Max & Louie Productions for bringing this fascinating play to the St. Louis audience, especially in such a well crafted production.”
