Queen City Flash

Queen City Flash is Cincinnati's Flash Mob theater company presenting a form of theatrical presentation new to Cincinnati while also offering free community performances to under-served communities in the Greater Cincinnati area.

Queen City Flash's first production, THE COMPLETE TOM, is a new, expanded look at Mark Twain's writings on Tom Sawyer, pulling together alternate sources and combining them with his classic novels. THE COMPLETE TOM is a four play cycle and will be presented throughout the 2014-2015 season at various locations. 

In my schoolboy days I had no aversion to slavery. I was not aware that there was anything wrong about it. No one arraigned it in my hearing; the local papers said nothing against it; the local pulpit taught us that God approved it, that it was a holy thing, and that the doubter need only look in the Bible if he wished to settle his mind — and then the texts were read aloud to us to make the matter sure; if the slaves themselves had an aversion to slavery they were wise and said nothing.
— Mark Twain, Chapters from My Autobiography
