Quick Silver Theater Company
Michael Mobley is a Brooklyn-based playwright. He’s a two-time Regional Finalist for the John Cauble Award for Outstanding Short Play.
His play, “Monsters” was a finalist for the Seven Devils Playwrights Conference and The Playwrights Realm’s Scratchpad Series. He has had his work supported by
Atlantic Center for the Arts.
In "Monsters", three black haunted house performers become the monsters they portray, which asks the question: are monsters made or are they born? When their supervisor unexpectedly resigns and need a replacement, one of the performers sees the promotion as a way to get out of his terrible living situation, but for the other two performers the promotion becomes more deadly than the haunted house itself.

QSTC Writers’ Accountability Group Outline
Established goals for such groups is:
to regularly engage in the act of writing; and
establish realistic benchmarks to achieve before the next meeting.
By dint of being sponsored by QSTC, this group aims to be so much more than a generic postgraduate writers’ group; as this group exists within the broader framework of a company oriented to serve BIPOC artists, QSTC will endeavor to help decolonize the canon through accelerating and solidifying the output from our community.
