David was born and raised in Boston’s inner city. When he was 12, he received a six-year scholarship to a prestigious New England prep school, and, being the son of a factory worker and a fruit peddler, his view of the world has bordered on the absurd ever since. Not surprisingly, David’s plays tend to be peopled with outsiders in search of clarity. Walking a line between grave reality and joyous lunacy, the world of his plays is often dark, funny, blithe, enigmatic, hopeful, ironic, and somewhat cock-eyed. David has received commissions from South Coast Rep, Dance Theater Workshop and the Jerome Foundation, as well as awards from the L.A. Drama Critics Circle, Backstage West, the Berrilla Kerr Foundation, LeComte du Nuoy Fund, The New York Observer, Mixed Blood Theater, Primary Stages, The Tennessee Williams Literary Festival, and the South Carolina Playwrights Festival. David is a graduate of Milton Academy, Sarah Lawrence College, and the Juilliard School’s Lila Acheson Wallace American Playwrights Program. He is also a proud member of the Dramatists Guild and the Writers Guild of America. Currently his play Rabbit Hole is making its Broadway home at the Manhattan Theatre Club starring Cynthia Nixon, John Slattery and Tyne Daly.
