David Shaw-Parker       Actor and Voice Artist

Monday June 29th 2015
As we wave an emotional 'au revoir' to  McQueen at The St. James Theatre, I'm consoled to announce that I shall soon be starting rehearsals for Lucy Bailey's production of The Importance of Being Earnest which is about to undertake a nationwide tour with the original west end cast except for Niall Buggy - whom I shall be replacing as Chasuble - and Cherie Lunghi. The radio plays by David Morley 'Heading For Paradise' about the families of the victims of Malaysia Airlines flight MH017 directed by Dirk Maggs and the new Rumpole of The Bailey series with Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by Marilyn Imrie for Radio 4 are due for broadcast in July. The Lemming Chronicles is now edited and ready for epublication and audio book which hopefully should be ready for the new year. I'm also recording further sessions of voices for the computer game Fable and Anno 3 but there are occasional windows in the diary 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, The Last Chronicle of Barsetshire and The Poetry of John Clare.
