Doug Wright is an award-winning American playwright, librettist, and screenplay writer. His play “Quills” premiered at Washington, DC’s Woolly Mammoth Theatre in 1995 and subsequently debuted Off-Broadway at New York Theatre Workshop. The play recounts the imagined final days in the life of the Marquis de Sade. “Quills” garnered the 1995 Kesselring Prize for Best New American Play from the National Arts Club and, for Wright, a 1995 Village Voice Obie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Playwriting. In 2000, Wright wrote the screenplay for the film version of “Quills” which starred Geoffrey Rush.
Wright’s play “I Am My Own Wife” was produced Off-Broadway by Playwrights Horizons in 2003. It transferred to Broadway where it won the Tony Award for Best Play, as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
