Welcome to Purple Door Productions. Thanks for visiting.


Purple Door Productions is a showcase for writer/director Katharine Rogers.  The house of her adolescence had a purple front door.  It stood alone in a street of ordinary coloured front doors.  It came to represent for Katharine the brilliance of daring to stand out from the crowd.
