David Whiteley- Director
David is delighted to be directing for the Fools, after acting with them in Shakespeare under the Stars, The Merchant of Venus, and last summer’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. David acts, directs, makes music and writes for many local professional theatre companies including the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, Odyssey Theatre, Seven Thirty Productions and Third Wall Theatre, where he directed The Brothers Menaechmus and his own critically acclaimed translation of The Misanthrope. David’s translation/adaptations of Tartuffe, What Goes Around… and A Flea in Her Ear were all nominated for Rideau Awards, as was A Leave of Absinthe which he directed.
Last February, David Launched Plosive Productions, directing The Importance of Being Ernest at The Gladstone. He is thrilled that Plosive and Seven Thirty will give new life to The Gladstone as a rental venue, with a Seven Thirty/ Plosive season of The 39 Steps, Speed-the-Plow, Dr. Fell, and The Shadow.
