LIBERTY & JOE DIMAGGIO
by David Ian Lee and L. Jay Edenmeyer
Alex and Erik live in Battery Park, just minutes from the World Trade Center and the impact of history. In this terrible time, the tensions and challenges humanity grappled with are played out in the microcosm of one, small apartment. They don’t agree on most things … except their devotion to each other. At all costs.

David Ian Lee’s preferred moniker is “theatremaker.” He is an active director, actor, playwright, and educator, though along the way he’s worn at least a dozen other hats. His plays have been performed on three continents and in multiple languages. Since 2016 he has served as a Producing Artistic Director for Pipeline-Collective, and in 2022 – after a decade teaching in higher education – he accepted the position of Director of the Theatre Conservatory at Montverde Academy, located outside of Orlando, Florida. David received his MFA in Directing from Illinois State University, studied in New York with Bill Esper and Terry Knickerbocker at the Esper Studio, and has been a cohort at programs including Directors Lab West and the La Mama International Directors Symposium. Favorite credit: Father to Beckett, on which David collaborated with his wife, Karen.
