News   Quartermaine's Terms Set for 2009 Williamstown Theatre Festival; Aitken Directs
 
Simon Gray's comedy Quartermaine's Terms will be the final main stage production of the summer season at the Williamstown Theatre Festival.

Casting is currently underway for the British comedy that will run Aug. 12-23, according to a casting notice. U.K. actress and The 39 Steps director Maria Aitken will stage the production. Set in the early 1960's at the Cull-Loomis School of English for Foreigners in Cambridge, England, Quartermaine's Terms follows a band of idiosyncratic teachers and the amiable central character, St. John Quartermaine, who is more engrossed in his academic life than the goings on around him.

Gray's plays include Butley, The Common Pursuit, The Late Middle Classes, Japes, Cell Mates, The Old Masters and Otherwise Engaged.

The complete Williamstown Theatre Festival line-up is expected in February. For information on WTF, visit WilliamstownTheatreFestival.
