Damien has acted on most of the major stages across the country. He spent four seasons at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, as both actor and playwright. Their 2001 production of Good Mother, starring Seana McKenna, made Atkins the youngest playwright to have his work produced by the Festival. His other works as a playwright include Lucy (at Canadian Stage in Toronto and the Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York City), Miss Chatelaine (Theatre Passe Muraille/Grand Theatre) and Real Live Girl (Buddies in Bad Times/Manitoba Theatre Centre/Grand Theatre). Damien has been playwright in residence at Canadian Stage and Crow’s Theatre, as well as a Guest Instructor at the National Theatre School of Canada. He has received nine Dora Mavor Moore Award nominations for acting and writing, winning four.
