David Rimmer

DAVID RIMMER is the playwright of the Pulitzer Prize finalist play, Album, which played for a year Off-Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre and has been a perennial favorite at regional and community theaters, colleges and secondary schools, ever since. It was published by Nelson Doubleday, Dramatists Play Service, and reprinted in dozens of scene and monologue collections. Davidís other plays include New York, which was recently published by Samuel French, and now available for amateur, regional, school and professional groups. Originally written as a benefit for Disaster Psychiatry Outreach and first performed at Lotus, NYC, its subsequent performances have been at Ensemble Studio Theater, Seven Angels Theater, Waterbury CT, HB Studios, a six-month run at Theater Studio, NY, and many other venues in the tri-state area and New England. Davidís also the author of Yankee Wives (Old Globe Theater Mainstage, San Diego; Two Roads Theater, Los Angeles; Shetler Studios, NY) and Nobody Dies (many college productions) and The Reunion Guy (Williams Club, HB Studios). One-acts include Miss Subways Meets the Sex Machine, Stray Bullets and Greatest Show On Earth (all at Playwrights Horizons), The Painted Name and The Evening News. David has written screenplays and television scripts for major studios -- Disney, Universal, Twentieth-Century Fox and Viacom -- including "Tron" and "Charles in Charge". His scenes and monologues are printed in many collections, including three from New York in Applause Bookís series, One On One: The Best Monologues For the New Millenium, just published. He teaches in the English and Humanities Departments of LaGuardia Community College, helping develop original student-written plays. His current writing projects include a novel, "Bump" and an original screenplay, "Sonnet 116". Heís also working on a screenplay based on Album, which promises to range far afield from the text of the play, taking a look at not only the kids from 1967, but their kids, and them as adults, dealing with the same universal problems of the present day.
