Andrew Douglas is a writer and artist based in Perth, Western Australia. Andrew has been actively involved in the independent journalism space for several years, covering arts, culture and stories which are unique to Perth. He is a produced playwright and is currently working on a book.
His first produced play ‘Grand Final’ was part of the 2000 Pride Festival and examines the issues of a star AFL player who struggles to maintain a personal relationship which conflicts with both his career and media image.
