Dan William Lee
Seamlessly integrating cultural and political content, Dan Lee tells the tale of Will, a once-desperate alcoholic who returns to Broome with a radical plan to break the cycle of booze, madness, crime and incarceration. Providing the Australian stage with a glimpse into a rarely seen world, Bottomless features genuinely funny, convincing characters who are aware of and alive to life's possibilities and opportunities.
Dan was brought up in Melbourne and recently returned to his hometown after spending five years in Broome in northern Western Australia. Before leaving for WA, he hosted spoken-word and comedy nights around Melbourne and appeared in several one-man shows for the Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival. While living in Broome he fronted the Cable Bitches, a glam punk band. Since his return to Melbourne in October 2013, he has been working on plays and other writing for performance.
In addition to winning an RE Ross Trust Playwrights’ Script Development Award, Dan has also been invited to attend a Playwriting Australia National Script Development Workshop.
