ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT

Meet Donald C. Drake

Playwright Donald C. Drake

Don Drake has had productions and readings in Philadelphia, New York City, San Francisco, Vienna (Austria), Norfolk, Palm Springs and several other cities and has won many competitions, including a staged reading at the O’Neill Theater Center’s National Playwrights Conference. He has been writing all his life, first as a precocious kid in grade school and later in adult life as a journalist and playwright. He ended up combining these two careers with each one benefiting from the other. As special projects writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer, the news stories he did provided compelling material for his plays. And as a playwright, he pioneered the use of playwriting techniques to dramatize and explain complex news events. The technique was so successful that he was a Pulitzer Prize finalist three times and one of the narrative stories he edited won a Pulitzer. Though he loved his work as a journalist, playwriting was his first love and he ultimately left the Inquirer to become a full-time playwright.

He is a member of the Philadelphia Dramatists Center and the Dramatists Guild of America.
