"It's all in the doin'..."

- "Three Rivers" by Thomas Patrick Clancy

In 2002, after years of working with theater groups and seeing that actors (including himself) were not being used to their highest potential, Thomas Patrick Clancy founded Darknight Productions to provide actors, writers and directors with an environment in which to explore bold, provocative issues and themes​​. He also challenged actors to open up their minds and challenge themselves to undertake projects  as directors, producers and playwrights.  ​​Tom has worked with several other theater companies in the area including ARTgroup, Bronx Center Stage, Red Monkey Theater Group and Runaway Theater Company as producer, writer, actor and director. Tom truly believed in theater by the people, of the people and for the people.
