Welcome to the website of writer, David Douglas.


David Douglas is a playwright and award-winning short story author. With a penchant for combining romance and mystery, he often writes of central love stories affected (for better or worse) by murder, secrets, or past transgressions. An active member of several writers' organizations, David has served on multiple Boards of Directors, is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America, and is the founder of Stage Writers — a Dallas-based playwright organization. His full-length play Railbird has received readings in the First Impressions Festival (Imprint Theatreworks) and the Play Readers Club (Our Productions Theatre Co.). In 2019, David organized the first annual Stage Writers Festival and directed three play readings, including his own short play, Him. In addition to writing, David loves watching classic and independent films and, of course, attending readings and productions of plays. read more >>

Currently, David is working on two new full-length plays. One is a dystopian fantasy involving a sort of pilgrimage through a rural landscape. The other is a mystery/thriller, akin to the movie Charade, but with the enigmatic cool factor found in Le samouraï.

Love will find a way to be what love is.
