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. 


Queen City Flash is a community-centric theater company dedicated to open access to the arts. By untethering the performing arts from physical space, prohibitive costs and traditional theatrical expectations, Queen City Flash unites local artists with their communities to create new, impactful theatre.

Currently, our programming falls under one of three big umbrellas:

Because I knowed Him

Free (mostly-outdoor) theater around Greater Cincinnati, with an emphasis on transforming space into a stage and introducing locals to hidden gems within their city.  

These include: The Complete Tom - our sprawling, 4-part play cycle about Tom Sawyer, Hypersensitive - created over four days with students from James Madison University, and (wink wink) something brand new, coming this summer!

Cradle Cincinnati

Plays for a community, made with the help of that community. 

These include: our new partnership with Cradle Cincinnati to help Mothers craft their personal narrative, our collaboration with PONES, Inc. on POV, and our Celebration of Harriet Beecher Stowe at her House in Walnut Hills. 

Plays that tackle local issues and national conversations. These include: Ken Ham's Journey to the Center of the Earth - A Raider's of the Lost Ark parody about Creationism, and Slut Shaming - a time travel rape adventure about teenage sexual abuse.
