The Franklin Institute

David Wrigley

David has been creating, directing, and performing science shows with The Franklin Institute since 2014.

At Muhlenberg College David studied pre-med Biology and Theatre while performing in at least one play a semester and singing in two choirs and an acapella group. After college David continued his theatre training and performances in the Lehigh Valley, Philadelphia, and Chicago.

David's work with The Traveling Science Shows brings him to students in schools, libraries, and community centers from Connecticut all the way down to Virginia where he is able to combine his love of science and his love of theatre with dynamic, interactive, demo filled science shows.

David has created many short, original, science themed plays for Science After Hours, the Philadelphia Science Festival, and other events held by The Franklin Institute. In addition to his work at TFI, David runs a small theatre company called Brotherly Love Theatre Company.
