Production Managers are responsible for everything on stage except actors. This covers sound, lighting, video, set, props, costumes, special effects, edibles, giant teddy bears, bottles to be smashed over someone's head, vintage wheelchairs, you name it. 

Alison's usual responses to requests are 'Is it within budget?', 'What colour do you want it?', and 'I'll have a look on Ebay'. 

When she's not working at New Perspectives, Alison moonlights as ASM/Designer's Assistant for the Classic Thriller Season at Nottingham Theatre Royal, where she can indulge in her love of period props.
