Sundown Collaborative Theatre's JAVA SCRIPTS features a variety of short acts ranging from the scripted and linear to the devised and abstract. This year's festival dives into the awkwardness of our daily existence, of struggles with mental illness, of magic hidden in plain sight, and the absolute absurdity of life. Each night of performances will feature a different line-up of acts, including Him, written and directed by David Douglas.
David Douglas will be one of five playwrights crafting a short play for the One Day Only 29 event at Rover Dramawerks on Saturday, June 22. It's literally concept to curtain in one day, as brand new plays are written Friday night and performed in front of an audience the very next night at 8pm & 10pm.
Railbird by David Douglas is one of eight plays selected by Imprint Theatreworks to receive a staged reading in the second annual First Impressions Festival for Local Playwrights! In addition to the readings, the festival will feature Q&A panels, talk-back sessions, and other networking opportunities geared toward providing awareness, opportunities, and support for local Dallas–Fort Worth playwrights.
Railbird will close out the festival on Saturday, February 23rd @ 9:30pm.
Geared toward new writers and those wanting to add to their writing toolbox, Fledgling Writers Community present bite-sized writing information from industry professionals. The first Mini of 2019 features:
“Enter Stage Right: Playwriting Basics” with David Douglas;
“Share and Share Alike: Being Generous With Our Writing Resources and Gifts” with Cathy Rueter;
and “Perfect Pairings: Crafting a Hero and Heroine Who Were Made for Each Other” with Allie Pleiter.
Featuring a new playwright each month (January–March), Our Productions Theatre Co. hosts their 2nd annual Play Readers Club. To kick off the new season, Railbird by David Douglas has been selected as the featured script for January and will be read aloud then discussed, book club style. The event is FREE and will be held in the Medical City of Lewisville Grand Theater (Lewisville, TX).
