Daniel David Moses is "a coroner of the theatre who slices open the human heart to reveal the fear, hatred and love that have eaten away at it. His dark play...can leave its audience shaking with emotion." (Kate Taylor, the Globe & Mail, about The Indian Medicine Shows). Moses, a Delaware from the Six Nations lands on the Grand River, graduated from York University and the University of British Columbia. He lives in Toronto, where he writes, and in Kingston, where he teaches playwrighting, as a Queen’s National Scholar in the Department of Drama, Queen’s University.
