(1963 - living) Canada
David Demchuk was born and raised in Winnipeg and now lives in Toronto. He is the father of a thirteen-year-old boy; they both play too many video/computer games - this seems like a better alternative.
A playwright, independent filmmaker, screenwriter, essayist, critic and journalist, he has been writing for theatre, film, television, radio and other media for more than twenty years. His plays have been produced in Toronto, New York, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Vancouver, Chicago, San Francisco, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and in London, England.
Titles include: Rosalie Sings Alone, If Betty Should Rise, Touch, Stay, Mattachine and a new stage adaptation of The Island of Dr. Moreau. His film-for-television commissioned by CBC titled Ghosts of Toronto is currently in development. David is a 1999 graduate of the Canadian Film Centre's Screenwriting Program, their senior program for film and television writers.
