Donald Tongue

Donald TongueEven before he knew A from B, or that they were followed by C, Donald Tongue has been crafting works of fiction. He would often climb into his father's office chair and use an old Royal typewriter to bang out a senseless stream of characters onto a clean white sheet of paper. Once he learned to read and, more importantly, write, his works of fiction took on a more tangible form.
br~Fast forward some thirty years and we find Donald appearing on stage as a Pirate in The Pirates of Penzance, as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, the Tin Man in the Wizard of OZ, and in many other theatrical incarnations in over twenty productions. In December of 2006, while performing the role of Bob Cratchit in a production of A Christmas Carol, Donald decided to write a play that drew from this experience. The work was titled Scene Changes and it chronicled the lives of two fictional actors playing Mr. and Mrs. Cratchit. It was a watershed moment in his life, an experience that connected his youthful passion for storytelling with his adult passion for the theater, and from that moment on he read, studied, and devoured anything that would help him further develop his skills as a playwright.
br~Donald is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America and the Playwrights Platform in Newton, MA.
