About the Resource

Three Murders, a Suicide and a Near Miss is a comedy based on Shakespeare’s tragic Othello. The powerful play is transformed into a farcical melodrama, with the stock characters of villain, hero, heroine and fool.
Introduced by an Announcer, the script mixes modern characterisation with melodramatic farce, but still retains all the essential elements of the original story.
Appealing to adults and children alike, and simple to stage, it offers a lively introduction to Shakespeare.

She has written over 20 plays and enjoys hearing about them being performed, and what young actors liked about their performances.
When she’s not writing plays, Alison is the manager of Arts On The Move, a company providing lovely creative support for schools, actors, youth groups and drama practitioners.  
Alison's favourite colour is bright pink. Her favourite food is potatoes. Her favourite football team is Manchester City. She enjoys watching TV, reading and Zumba.
