A versatile, accomplished storyteller, Trish Doolan is an acclaimed screenwriter, playwright, director and actor. She wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film April’s Shower, which was released by Regent Films and promptly won four best picture awards, two in the States and two in Europe. The New York Times called April’s Shower highly “enjoyable” and “refreshingly volatile.” The San Francisco Chronicle deemed it “expansive, talky and zany,” and called Trish’s storytelling “impressive.”
Raised in Queens, New York and one of six children, Trish’s strong Irish/Italian family provided much of the inspiration for her first novel, Me & Five Guys. The Running with Scissors-like Me and Five Guys is loosely based on her experiences coming of age. Her second novel, The Singing Gardener, is a classic tale of forbidden love and the magic that occurs when we follow our hearts.
One of Trish’s many screenplays, Me & My Cannoli’s had been optioned by prolific Hollywood Exec Producer Lucas Foster (Mr.& Mrs. Smith, Crimson Tide, Man on Fire) Trish recently took this project back into her hands. Two of her other screenplays, Dancing Fool and Break-Up Patrol are currently in finance and development stages. In late 2007 Trish wrote, directed, produced and starred in the short film, What’s True; a controversial film posing the question… while innocent people are wrongly convicted and spending time in prison for crimes they did not commit “What is true?” The film was selected to participate in the Cannes Film Festival Shorts program.
Trish just finished post- production on a pilot that she wrote and directed, The Bug in My Ear, Starring Tony Sirico as THE BUG.
And most recently finished producing the pilot, SINGLED OUT, which she stars in the role of Bri.
