Current projects:

Alison has finished writing her book: The Improv Book - Improvisation for Theatre, Comedy, Education and Life which will be published by Oberon Press in Spring 2015.

She continues to work at the Arcola Theatre, Dalston as facilitator and director of the 60+ Drama Group. In June, their devised show, 'Misbehaving' on the subject of rebellion had four performances, with a fifth in October for a Hackney Council event. One piece from the show, Kazim Altan's Freedom to be Imprisoned, featured in the Face to Face solo theatre festival at The Lost Theatre.

Every Sunday afternoon Alison, together with top theatre director Peter Joucla, are running ICE (Improvised Comedy East) drop-in improvisation classes at the Tour de Force Studios in Hackney. Contact Alison at alisongoldie@aol.com for more details. We have a great group attending regularly, but there are spaces for new people, so don't be shy, come and try...

Alison is training for a qualification in coaching! She is working with clients and loving every minute of it. A natural new development...
