Name: Alison Deon
Home town: Nelson, BC
Role/Position: Jacqueline in DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER
Thousand Islands Playhouse: What is your favourite thing about Gananoque?
Alison Deon: Jumping off the dock into the river after the show! Also, the people.
TIP: Do you cook? What is your favourite meal to cook?
AD: I make a pretty good vegan South Indian dahl – it’s my main move.
TIP: What led you to working in the theatre?
AD: Wonderful drama teachers in school growing up in Nelson, BC, and a lifelong love of telling stories and playing dress-up.
TIP: DON’T DRESS FOR DINNER features madcap high jinx, mistaken identities, and secrets at every turn. Have you ever been in a similar situation?
AD: I would be terrible in a real-life farce situation. I have no poker face and would quickly crack under the pressure.
TIP: What’s at the top of your bucket list, theatre or otherwise?
AD: Would really love a country house that looks just like our set. I also would not mind it being “less than two hours from Paris” like Bernard and Jacqueline’s :).
