David Cade, Writer & Actor

Born in the extreme and dramatic "Scottish City of the South", Dunedin, New Zealand, of an English Protestant father and an Irish Catholic mother, David Cade took his first drama classes at the age of five in the town of Ngaruawahia - official home of New Zealand's Maori King. His formative years were spent in the tropics, on the island of Viti Levu, Fiji.

After studying philosophy, psychology, drama, and linguistics in England he taught for many years in schools and universities in the UK and the Middle East before focusing solely upon theatre and writing. After a number of years living in the dramatic splendour of the Dyfi Valley in "Wild West Wales" and the Mardu Valley in the South Shropshire Hills he is now based in the town of Shrewsbury, just a stone's throw from countryside as idyllic as it's possible to find anywhere in Britain.
