David is a New Jersey-based playwright and educator that has worked with Passage Theatre, McCarter Theatre, Dreamcatcher Rep, PlayPenn, Rider University, and Drexel University as well as many other theatres and theatre programs in the NJ/NY/PA area. He received his MFA from the University of Pittsburgh and his BA from the University of Missouri, Kansas City. His work runs the gamut from improvisational theatre, political satire, oral history-based docudrama, musical theatre, educational theatre, and mental health advocacy. In 2016, David was commissioned by the New Jersey Performing Arts Center's Stage Exchange Program and Passage Theatre to create the play Fixed. The play premiered at Passage Theatre in May 2017. Previously, his play Blood: A Comedy was seen at Passage Theatre (2009) and Dreamcatcher Rep (2012). His play Slipper As Sin also received its world premiere at Passage in 2011. The one-act play White Baby was originally produced at Passage Theatre, then at Emerging Artists Theatre in NY. His solo show Panther Hollow was performed at Dreamcatcher Rep, The United Solo Festival in NY, The New Jersey Fringe Festival, Passage Theatre, Arcade Comedy Theatre in Pittsburgh, Point Park College, and Drexel University. At Passage, White created the show This Trenton Life which was the subject of an Emmy Award-nominated broadcast on PCK Media's State of the Arts. Other plays include The Festial Quartet (readings at Bristol Riverside Theatre and Writer's Theatre of New Jersey) and Rocket Sex Magic - a comedy about real life rocket scientist/occultist Jack Parsons (reading at Writer's Theatre of New Jersey). For the past two years, David has been working with Jeffrey Barg on the musical The Angry Grammarian and with Kate Brennan on the musicals Clean Slate and ALiEN8.
