Biography

Quicksall-David

“Much Ado About Nothing” is David’s fourth production with Seattle Shakespeare Company in less than a year — he just can’t get enough of the world’s greatest playwright. Last season, you may have seen him as Don Armado (“Love’s Labour’s Lost”), Petruchio (“The Taming of the Shrew”), and the Duke of Exeter (“Henry V”). David will take a break from acting Shakespeare this winter and direct his adaptation of “Frankenstein” for Book-It Repertory Theatre. David gives many thanks to Seattle Shakespeare Company for being such a wonderful company to work
with — what a great year it has been! He sends all his love to his wife, Rachel, and their 6th grade daughter, Maia.
