Pastor Norman Allen

Pastor Norman Allen joined Davies as part of a unique partnership with Cedar Lane Unitarian Universalist Church during the 2017-18 church year. Following the success of that partnership, Pastor Norm became the congregation’s contracted minister in July 2018.

A graduate of Wesley Theological Seminary and of the chaplaincy program at John Hopkins Hospital, Pastor Norm is also a professional writer whose essays have appeared on websites for OnBeing, OnFaith, and Tikkun, and in the pages of the Washington Post, Baltimore Sun, and Smithsonian, Washingtonian and Yes! magazines.

As a playwright, Norman has seen his work commissioned and produced locally by the Shakespeare Theatre Company, the Kennedy Center, the Olney Theatre Center, and Signature Theatre; and internationally in Prague, Ljubljana, Seoul, Tokyo, Cape Town, and Budapest. His plays In The Garden and Nijinsky’s Last Dance were honored with Helen Hayes Awards.

A former high school English teacher, Norman worked with the Center for Inspired Teaching as a teacher’s coach and founded the Signature in the Schools theatre education program.

Norman, his partner Gary, and their son Isaac share their DC home with two loving pups, who remind them daily of the comfort that comes with unconditional love. For more information check out Pastor Norm’s website and the links below.
