Quark Theatre originated in 2015 when Tony Isbell, Louisa Koeppel, and Adam Remsen came together to mount an independent production of Samuel Beckett’s Krapp’s Last Tape and Ohio Impromptu. The run was a success, garnering enthusiastic audiences and critical praise from local reviewers. When the show closed, the three of us decided to form a company dedicated to the kind of thoughtful, challenging theatre that we loved, and that we felt was underrepresented in the Memphis theatre scene. Our intent is to focus on works that have not received local productions, especially (but not exclusively) recent plays.
Quark is supported by ticket sales, by donations, and by the generosity of our friends at ArtsMemphis.
