Devon Williamson


Devon Williamson's plays are loved by producers, actors and audiences alike.

Producers love the plays because they are easy to sell - great titles, hilarious comedy, characters and situations that audiences identify with.

Actors love the plays because they are great fun to act - bold and interesting characters, intense conflict, great dialogue and enthusiastic audience response.

Audiences love the plays because they have a great night out - hilarious comedy, insightful drama, and a story that keeps an audience on the edge of its seat (when they are not rolling in the aisles!).
