Rev David William Parry
Former TEDx Speaker
Founder of Theo-Humanist Arts
An award-winning 'theatrical poet' and Central Asia enthusiast, Rev David Parry is also an LGBT 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 a book on Warholian Art.
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.
