Alison has devoted the best part of fifty years to the amateur stage. She is an award winning actress and director who has made it a priority to understand, as well as to experience, all other theatrical disciplines in the process. She has a particular interest in design and costume and a keen eye for detail.
On relocating to the West Country in 2000, in addition to her active involvement with existing drama societies, she founded her own small production company, Manor House (formerly known as Blackdown Productions) and has produced plays and musicals for actors of all ages and abilities.
