Qui Nguyen

Resident Playwright

2009 -- 2016

Originally from Arkansas, Qui Nguyen is a writer, fight choreographer, and all around pop-culture nerd. When he’s not geeking out to indie comics and early 80s hip-hop, he spends his time being the Co-Artistic Director of the OBIE-Award-winning Vampire Cowboys. His scripts include Soul Samurai (Ma-Yi Theater/Vampire Cowboys); Krunk Fu Battle Battle (East West Players); Aliens vs Cheerleaders (Keen Teens); She Kills Monsters (The Flea); Trial by Water (Ma-Yi Theater); Bike Wreck (EST); and the VC productions of The Inexplicable Redemption of Agent G; Alice in Slasherland; Fight Girl Battle World; Men of Steel; Living Dead in Denmark; A Beginner’s Guide to Deicide; and Vampire Cowboy Trilogy. His scripts are published by Samuel French, Broadway Play Publishing, and Playscripts, Inc. Honors include, nominations for Outstanding Production in 2008 & 2006 NY Innovative Theatre Awards (Fight Girl Battle World and Living Dead in Denmark); a citation for 2007’s Best Adaptation of Comics into Other Media by ComicCritique.com (Men of Steel); NYTheatre.com’s 2004 People of the Year, and featured as a “Playwright to Watch” by Time Out New York. Qui is proud member of New Dramatists, Ma-Yi Writers Lab, Ensemble Studio Theatre, The Playwrights’ Center, and currently Mellon Playwright-in-Residence at Mixed Blood Theater in Minneapolis.
