Daphne White is a playwright and journalist. She began her writing career covering local politics in suburban Atlanta, and then covered national issues in Washington, DC. She also spent 10 years running a national nonprofit advocacy group, and got to see how the sausage is made from the inside out. (It wasn’t pretty.)

Now living in Berkeley, CA, Daphne is a member of the Dramatists Guild; the Playwrights’ Center (MN); the Playwright’s Center of San Francisco; and Berkeley’s Play Cafe. 

She has had two staged readings as part of Theater J’s “5×5” series in Washington, DC in 2011 and 2013. Daphne has studied playwriting with Edith Freni, Karen Hartman and Will Dunne, among others. Her plays are influenced by history as well as current events, and she brings her journalistic research skills to everything she writes.
