Actor, Playwright Figueras ’16 Brings Words to Life

By Purnell T. Cropper | March 17, 2014

Damien Figueras ’16 writes about his development as an actor and playwright in his first two posts for Because Arcadia. The English and Theater Arts major recently performed in Arcadia University’s production of Harvey. In “Acting: Learning to Walk in Someone Else’s Shoes,” he explains his initial reaction—discombobulation—to an acting exercise during rehearsal for the play. Later, he shares how a playwriting class gave him the confidence to submit and have his work produced by a South Jersey community theater.
