Susan Glaspell was born in Davenport, Iowa in 1876. She was a journalist, author, actor and Pulitzer Prize winning playwright. She founded the Provincetown Players, one of the first great American theatres, which launched the careers of such luminaries as Eugene O'Neil, Edna St. Vincent Millay and Theodore Dreiser. Due to the immense contributions she made during her lifetime she has often been called "The First Lady of American Drama"

As a theatre based in her hometown of Davenport, Iowa, the QC Theatre Workshop believes in the importance of sharing and sustaining Susan's incredible legacy. To this end, we are presenting an annual Susan Glaspell Playwriting Festival, featuring works by local and national playwrights.
