Rev. David Parry

Founder of Theo-Humanist Arts
Valentinian Priest
Award-Winning Poet

An award-winning 'theatrical poet' and Central Asia enthusiast, Rev David Parry is also an LGBTQ activist, playwright, producer, essayist, broadcaster, actor, director, founding member of Theo-Humanist Arts and a frantically busy Social Gospel pastor to South London’s disadvantaged.


Rev Parry regularly co-hosts a number of international podcasts; including THA Talks and Sunday Valentine’s Service, while somehow finding enough breath to write his D. Philos (High Doctorate) at Aarhus University, Denmark, on Warholian Art Installations: A Theology of Banality.


Indeed, his critically acclaimed lyrical collections, Caliban’s Redemption, and The Grammar of Witchcraft explore Shakespearean noir, whilst his staged productions, The Botanist Monsieur Jordan and The Sorcerer-Dervish Mastali Shah; Shakespeare: A Comedy in Ten Scenes, both Serious and Tragic: along with Shakespeare Tonight, actively engage with highbrow gags for global audiences. After all, he believes nothing is more serious than comedy.
