IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT PAST...

 

Aug 21-Sept 20,  2014

I played Lou in Stella and Lou by Bruce Graham at Circle Theatre with Lisa Fairchild and Eric Wilder, directed by Robin Armstrong

 

"Davies’ Lou is one of those guys you can’t help cheering for. Graying and handsome, he’s the steady-as-she-goes captain of the bar, willing to listen to one more story. Still, he’s been through the grinder of grief himself—and it shows. When moved by a memory or a plea, Davies’ voice grows husky and wrenches slightly, but he keeps going."

Martha Heimberg--Theater Jones

Mar 5-Mar 22 2014

I played Al in Finishing School by Elaine Liner amd directed by Gene Ray Price  for 130 Productions with Larry Randolph (in photo), Ellen Locy and Catherine DuBordDue to illness, Larry was replaced by Gordon Fox

"Theatre Three boasts some of Dallas' strongest actors in its cast, too, notably Davies and Mayfield. They do bruised emotions superbly, moving as if their characters are bone-weary from sadness. When Davies finally releases Lyman's pent-up rage in the final moments, the play at last feels like it has achieved an honest human sentiment."  Elaine Liner--Dallas Observer

May 31-June 23 2013

I played The Father

in

Directed by Rene Moreno

for

"Most of the show’s humor arises from the interplay between the ‘friendly” domineering ghost father and gently befuddled Curtis. Graner’s Curtis enters into the comic repartee with an openhearted, unsuspecting innocence; and Davies’ ghost nails every laugh line like a wry Johnny Carson with a favorite guest."

May 1-May 18 2013

I played Gus Klingman in

 

Directed by BJ Cleveland

for

"Davies possesses amazing reactive skills, and he employs them with subtlety that is wonderfully effective in the intimate performance space at the Bath House Cultural Center on the banks of White Rock Lake. His Gus evolves gradually, reluctantly, from brooding loner to tentative out-reacher."
