Doric Wilson


Doric Wilson was one of the first playwrights at NYC's legendary Caffe Cino, his comedy *And He Made A Her* opening there in 1961, with Jane Lowry and Paxton Whitehead in the leads. Other Cino productions followed, including *Now She Dances!*, *Babel Babel Little Tower* and *Pretty People*. He received his early theater training under Lorraine Larson, apprenticed with Dorothy Seeburger and the Richland Players (WA), and studied briefly at the Drama Department of the University of Washington until he was asked to leave after he initiated a one person protest against anti-gay shootings at a nearby park. Doric Wilson's plays *Street Theater*, *The West Street Gang*, *Forever After* and *A Perfect Relationship* became staples of the emerging Gay Theater circuit, widely performed here and abroad and winning numerous honors, including The Villager and Chambers-Blackwell best play citations. In 1994 Wilson received the first Robert Chesley Award for Lifetime Achievement in Gay Theatre. He is a member of The Dramatist Guild and the Evette Society. He is currently working on two new plays, *An Object of Affection* and *Saints on a Secret Mission*.
