Alison is an actor, writer and director who very kindly read for us at the Dickens Festival this year.
Politic Man is her latest play about a Dr Alfred Salter and his wife Ada, who work unstintingly in Bermondsey to close the gap between rich and poor. But in doing so, they lose their only child to one of the diseases he seeks to cure.
Alison has blogged about the processes to bring the play to life, which you can read about here. For more information on the play, please visit here.
