David William Bryan trained at the Stella Adler Studio in NYC. After four years of appearing in various theatre productions, films and commercials he decided to specialise in one person plays. His first show Trashed premiered at The Underbelly, Edinburgh Fringe 2017. This year he returned with In Loyal Company at the Pleasance. He sold out thirty shows in twenty-seven days, moving to a venue twice the size to cope with demand. More information about David, video content, reviews, etc. can be found on his website.
