American contemporary playwright, a singularly outrageous satirist whose pen is dipped in venom and bile in the blood of his own personal wounds, irresistibly funny. He has a following among the critics and the public although only two of his plays have made it to Broadway for short runs. It is unlikely that Durang will gain mass popularity as his black humor is offensive to many people.
He produced his first play when he was in the 2nd grade; by the 8th grade he turned out his first full-length musical. In college he produced "The Nature and Purpose of the Universe," 1971, and put out seven plays while in Yale. He worked as a drama teacher and a teacher of play writing until 1976 when he moved to New York. "Sister Mary Igantius Explains it all for you" made its off-Broadway debut 12/79. He acted himself in his "The Marriage of Bette and Boo," New York, 5/85. Dark and boyishly handsome, he is 5' 6".
