Don’t Miss Quantum Theatre’s “10 for 21,” a New Experiential Production

Monday, April 5, 2021

Take a spring walk and get inspired by Quantum Theatre’s newest experiential production, 10 for 21.

Once upon a time in the 14th Century, a writer transported readers out of their plague-bound confines with stories told by 10 young people ‘podded together’ and using their imaginations to experience all the things on hold like love, sex, intrigue, friendship, and fun.

The resulting book, The Decameron, has endured, but whereas those 10 people were creations of Boccaccio, hundreds of years (and at least one pandemic) later, Quantum Theatre’s new adaptation, 10 for 21, finds them real, alive, contemporary, and equally unstoppable.

This audio experience is offered free of charge and is recommended to be experienced along with two walks: one in Frick Park, and a second visiting five iconic Downtown Locations including Point State Park, Katz Plaza, Market Square, Mellon Square Park, and Trinity Cathedral. 10 for 21 is a bit bawdy. Its good-spirited fun might be too mature for pre-teens.
