In this story of the of the notoriously irreverent Marquis de Sade, Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright Doug Wright wields his pen to cackle fiendishly at the self-righteous gatekeepers of morality. By turns witty, ironic, shocking and lyrical, Quills is a highly theatrical exploration of love and art and the responsibility of self-expression. Raw, wickedly funny, often disturbing and sometimes even sentimental, this play is a provocative theatrical experience for mature audiences. Please note: This play contains strong graphic language and nudity. Adult audiences only.

Cotuit Center for the Arts is located at 4404 Falmouth Road (Route 28), Cotuit. For more information or tickets call 508-428-0669 or visit www.artsonthecape.org.
