Silver Glass Productions will present the World Premiere of QUANTUM DEBT, a new movement-based drama conceived, written and directed by Suzanne Willett. Previews begin December 2 at Off-Broadway's The Players Theatre.

QUANTUM DEBT is a look at student debt through the lens of quantum physics. A first-generation college student struggles with increasing college debt as she returns home to help the family, leading her to question her sense of self-worth. This movement-based piece is rooted in the differing realities of the American Dream for GenXers and Millennials.

QUANTUM DEBT stars Caitlin Ferguson, Claire Main, Collin McConnell, Laura Murphy, Josephine Pizzino, David Skakopi and Rebecca Wolf. The production team includes
Zach Dulny (lighting), Kristine Schlachter (stage manager), and Simone Schieffer (set/costumes).
