John P. Dowgin

John P. Dowgin is a writer, director, actor, co-founder of The Porch Room, and co-creator of the “Mission: Rejected” podcast (as well as the voice of M:R’s eternally confused Dr. Biff Studebaker). His screenplays have earned finalist honors at the Austin Film Festival and ‘Top 50’ honors from the Nicholl Screenwriting Fellowship Competition. As a playwright, John wrote two entries in the Porch Room’s one-act compilation ‘Accidents Happen’ which was published by Concord Theatricals (formerly Samuel French) and has been performed on four continents. Other stage works include the science fiction one-act ‘Zebulon’s Calling’, which was performed by Sci-Fest LA on a slate alongside the works of Clive Barker and Neil Gaiman. As a director, John created the short film ‘Prey’, which premiered at 2022’s NJ Web Fest, and helmed the New York premiere of the Porch Room’s original stage play ‘Antony & Cleopatra: Infinite Lives’. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, their two sons, and two disturbingly large cats.
