DARYL IS a playwright, over-educated freelance graphic designer (MFA, University of Memphis) and actor (BS, Northwestern University) based in Atlanta, Georgia.

Her plays and musicals (the latter written with composer, Aaron McAllister) have been produced Off-Broadway (American Theatre of Actors, Theatre Row, New York Musical Theatre Festival), in professional regional and international theatres (Florida Rep, Actors Rep of Luxembourg, Weird Sisters Theatre Project, Aurora Theatre), and both produced and workshopped in academic settings (Emory Univ., Coastal Carolina Univ., Truman State Univ.). She is a commissioned playwright at Horizon Theatre (production, Fall 2016) and a professional member of the Dramatist Guild.

Her commitment is to writing multi-dimensional roles for women of all ages, races, and classes. Partly, that comes from being an actor herself and always being on the hunt for the next juicy role, and partly it comes from growing up in a richly textured college town in Mississippi.

When not writing, Daryl enjoys the occasional acting gig and caters to the graphic design needs of professional theatres in Atlanta—where the theatre scene is always hoppin’—and beyond.
