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
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
who have been selected as our Summit Finalists.
We look forward to sharing their projects with you shortly.
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.
