Douglas Jones is one of Richmond’s best-known playwrights and actors. He was written a chilling adaptation of Henry James’ Turn Of The Screw which had its world premiere at historic Hanover Tavern several years ago and many shows aimed at children for both Virginia Rep and the Science Museum Theatre. Acting roles have seen him taking on both Shakespeare and Dylan Thomas, as well as more contemporary roles.
