Founded in 2013, QSTC is a collective of thirteen artists dedicated to amplifying the collective voice, individual potential, and overall presence of people of color, women, and other marginalized groups within the American theatrical landscape. We execute our mission through a three-fold initiative;

    Develop and commission new work by emerging writers of color.


Create space for actors of color and other marginalized communities to explore and re-imagine classical and contemporary texts

in mounted productions.


Facilitate the hands-on, professional training and mentor-ship 

of designers, stage-managers, and backstage crew of color.

Quick Silver Theater Company's - Playwrights of Color Summit

June 8th through the 13th, 2020

This year we have something special in mind.

Four playwrights will be selected to participate.

Two playwrights will receive a staged reading of their work, and for the first time, by invitation only, we will be offering two previously unproduced playwrights a writing and research residency, named after our

long time ally and Summit moderator. 


The Michael Bradford Residency playwrights will have access to the HWS-Elizabeth Blackwell reading room, time and space to conduct research on the picturesque campus, and will participate in all programmatic aspects of the summit. At the conclusion of the summit, the residency playwrights will participate in a moderated discussion on the themes of their work, and (if applicable) a presentation of an excerpt of the work-in-progress.


Following the conclusion of the Summit, QSTC will continue to work with the research residency playwrights to ready their work to be presented as a staged reading as part of our

Citizen One Reading Series in the fall of 2020.
