Playwright Simon Gray brings us the staff room antics of British academe in a lovely finale to ACT’s 21st Mainstage Season. The sometimes sad inner lives of seven remarkably funny characters, troubled souls who might be any one of us, come to life at ACT in Quartermaine’s Terms.
Clayton Corzatte plays St. John Quartermaine, a gentle instructor in a downtrodden but proud school in Cambridge that teaches English to foreigners. He’ll be joined by a cast composed of Rick Tutor, David Mong, Jack Sydow, Joyce Harris, Diane Hall, and Richard Farrell. Resident Director Jeff Steitzer will be staging the show, with a top-notch design team of Shelley Henze Schermer (set), Anne Thaxter Watson (costumes), Al Nelson (lighting), and David Hunter Koch (sound).
