He was a Founding Trustee of the Graham Greene Birthplace Trust and a Festival Director and speaker on a number of occasions. The text of his 2008 paper, ‘Stamboul Train and the Timetable for 1932’, was later published in Dangerous Edges of Graham Greene: Journeys with Saints and Sinners (2011). A keen thespian, David also co-directed a rehearsed reading of Greene’s unpublished play A House of Reputation which was presented at the Festival in 2000–a world premiere. Yearly, he delighted festival goers with his highly animated, conducted tours of those parts of Berkhamsted School associated with Graham Greene.
