In addition to writing and performing the trio of "plays for one actor" which compose A Metaphysician in the Dark, (published by OT!OM! and Lulu Press) Dave has also toured the Midwest (mainly bars and Irish festivals) with Moon & Cloud, a pair of "plays for one actor" which he adapted and performed from short stories by James Joyce and Joseph Gahagan.
