About Violent Delights


Blending stage combat, dance, physical theater, clowning, and traditional theatrical convention, a charismatic Ringmaster will lead you through Shakespeare’s most spectacular life or death scenarios.  But remember, Violent Delights have violent ends.

“Alluring and disturbing in equal parts, the “violent” part of Violent Delights is sure to engage the audience.”

About Off the Quill

Off the Quill was founded by four like-minded friends (Patrick Mullen, Katie Wanschura, Leanne Dinverno, and J. Peter Langsdorf) who wanted to create a different kind of theater experience. One that blends many different mediums, like stage combat, dance, clowning, physicality, to present truly compelling stories to the audience. We aim to take classic and modern stories and make them our own, either by writing new material or presenting them in innovative ways.
