Last month doctoral candidate Alison Porter made an appearance as a panellist on The Space Theatre Docklands 'Live at 5' 50th broadcast on Facebook.
The Space is small theatre in Docklands which champions new writing (patron Sir Ian McKellen). They've been running a crowd funding campaign with a target of £15k as part of #saveourtheatres. Last month they met the target and Alison appeared on a panel with a group of playwrights and actors who will be sponsored by the campaign funds to talk about their work. As Adam Hemming (Artistic Director) says in the interview, Alison has been working with the Space for a while both as a playwright and also as a reader of play submissions, so it's great that she is able to be involved with them again. Her support package will involve receiving dramaturgical advice and guidance from their literary manager, Mike Carter, as she develops Land of Eagles - a set of verbatim monologues about Human Trafficking from Albania
