Dan Daly is a Brooklyn based scenic designer and visual artist experimenting with writing plays that grow from the design perspective.

Plays

  • Cavernous
    Discovering who you are is like being lost in a cave. Literally.

  • Moving
    Moving away from home is not easy, and neither is showing love. A short, tender, and bittersweet tale, taking place in the back of an actual moving truck, of a Son moving away and onto his next adventure. While only two characters appear onstage we see how his family is both supporting and holding him back through phone calls, texts, visits, and media interactions.
