David Shaw-Parker       Actor and Voice Artist


Current Availability and Commitments: Friday February 27th 2015

I am currently at home in London with no theatre commitments having just completed and epic week's workshop on three Euripides plays for Chichester and I'm happily re-ensconced on the voice circuit. I am about to record a radio play callled Far Side Of The Moore for Radio Three about the legendary Sir Patrick Moore as well as buffering up my jazz chords for a cabaret in which I'm accompanying Janie Dee on guitar in early March at Soho's Crazy Coqs. January has been spent preparing text for an audio reading and e-publication of my book The Lemming Chronicles as well as recording computer game voices for Warhammer and Dungeons. I have some voice commitments as well as ELT bookings which speckle the diary pages throughout this month and the next. Some daytime availability nonetheless.

David Shaw-Parker trained at RADA in 1975 and began his career at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1977 appearing in over twenty five productions between then and 1991. 

He went on to appear at The National Theatre in Oedipus Rex, The False Servant and My Fair Lady and in London's West End in Grand Hotel, The Country Wife, Acorn Antiques, Heavenly Ivy, Up n' Under, A Dead Secret, Milkwood Blues, Cyrano de Bergerac and recently, Titus Andronicus at Shakespeare's Globe. His numerous television credits include Inspector Morse, Space Precinct and The Commander and his films include Steven Soderbergh's Kafka, Uberto Pasolini's Still Life, The Man Who Knew Infinity and The Muppets' Christmas Carol.

His radio recordings include innumerable dramas such as Rumpole of the Bailey, Headlong, Two-Pipe Problems and Number Ten and as a voice artist records audio books regularly for Macmillan, Harper Coillins, Big Finish [Dr. Who] and Naxos for whom he has just recorded Pilgrim's Progress, Trollope's The Warden, Barchester Towers, Doctor Thorne, Framley Parsonage, The Small House at Allington and The Poetry of John Clare.
