OUR MISSION 

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.

POC Summit

Quick Silver Theater Company's - Playwrights of Color Summit

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

The schedule for our 2020 POC Summit has been postponed until 2021.  In lieu of our annual summit, we will be supporting our playwrights digitally. 

Congratulations to Phillip Christian Smith

and

Cynthia Robinson

who have been selected as our Summit Finalists.

We look forward to sharing their projects with you shortly.

THE ROAD TO THE SUMMIT

Take a trail blazing ride through the dramatic terrain of a new play! In the Fall of 2020, QSTC will ask select Summit donors to join us on

"The Road to the Summit", a virtual journey of discovery in preparation for the Playwrights of Color Summit for 2021.

 

We are looking for an Audience Representative to complete a team composed of the playwrights, the dramaturgs, and the QSTC company liaison. The team will assist the playwright in traveling through the landscape of the play in search of its untapped potential. 

 

At strategic points during the year the team will "ZOOM" together to offer the playwright new perspectives the play has revealed via their individual routes. Next spring, as the destination of "The Road to the Summit" draws close, we'll come together to celebrate our journey as a bon voyage in preparation for the Playwrights of Color Summit.

 

 

The Michael Bradford Residency playwrights will include:

Renee' FlemingsMyxolydia Tyler, and Pascale Armand.

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 2021.
