Roles for Christopher Thompson


Without using the words in your job title, what do you do at the Alliance?
"I guess you can call me the theatre therapist."

To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.
