Founded in 2018 by Bridget Minamore and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz, Critics of Colour is a collective for UK-based people of colour which aims to make writing about theatre, dance, and/or opera more accessible.
‘We believe it’s important for all of us who love British theatre to play a part diversifying the cultural landscape of theatre critics as much as possible.’
