David Keir Wright
David Keir Wright (1943-2020) was a Scottish internationalist, born and bred in Dundee. Performing on and off stage was an important aspect of his life from an early age. After qualifying as a teacher, he left the UK for Denmark in 1967 to introduce and pioneer educational drama and theatre in Scandinavia for half a decade. David held a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Physical Education & Drama (Loughborough, England), BA in Theatre Studies (Copenhagen, Denmark), MPhil in Drama and Theatre (Trondheim, Norway). He was an Associate member of the International Drama and Theatre in Education Association (IDEA), the Roy Hart International Arts Association and the British Association of Dramatherapists (BADth). His passion was the integration of voice work in drama and theatre. David was part of the international organizing committee of PPLG. With his commitment, integrity, and playfulness he helped to bring PPLG into being. PPLG will honour his legacy and his life for as long as it continues.
