Get to know Doran!
TCTP: Adam knows what snack to bring to any occasion. What's your go-to snack?
DK: Dark Chocolate or Pixie Sticks, but not together.
TCTP: Is there a missed opportunity in your life?
DK: This sounds generic, but no. I try to be honest with myself, pursue my dreams, and live without regret. Sorry Max.
TCTP: Max and Jenna lie about their relationship all in the name of love (or wanting to get away from it.) What do you think is worth lying for?
DK: Telling myself I’ll clean my room tomorrow so I can get sleep (please don’t @ me about my previous answer).
TCTP: MISSED OPPORTUNITIES is a spin on classic romantic comedies. What's your favorite rom-com and why?
DK: Say You Love Satan by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa because who doesn’t love early 2000’s pop culture references, demonic corruption, and satanic rituals?
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
DK: Carrying my SM Toolkit around town with emergency hot coco packets.
Check out Doran's work in MISSED OPPORTUNITIES running January 17 - February 16 at The Den. Tickets available soon!
