His adaptation of Dickens “A Christmas Carol” received the Connecticut Critics’ Circle Award when performed at the Westport Country Playhouse. “Elegy for Ebenezer” was later workshopped at Long Wharf Theatre. “Reborn Again,” a screenplay co-written with Pat Watkins, was optioned for production in 2010, and is currently being developed as a 10-part comedy series. Doug spent over 15 years as a corporate journalist, producer, and internal communications coordinator for a global management consulting firm. Beyond his ever-growing writing career, he continues to work as a professional theatre director. In addition to directing plays and musicals in New York and regional theatres, he made his opera debut directing the world premiere of Paula Kimper’s and Wende Person’s “Patience & Sarah” at Lincoln Center. This groundbreaking opera, based on Isabel Miller’s book about two women who find love in early 19th Century New England, is the first lesbian-themed opera.
