Alison Bruce has worked extensively in theatre, film and television over the course of her career. Her theatre highlight, undoubtedly, is the seven-hour epic, Angels in America. In the last few months, she has played Cassius in Pop-up Globe Auckland’s Julius Caesar, worked behind the scenes on Nightsong’s Te Pō, taken thousands of people on a fantastical voyage of discovery in the World of WearableArt 2017, appeared in Nell Gwynn for Auckland Theatre Company and in Kororāreka: The Ballad of Maggie Flynn for Red Leap Theatre. This will be Alison’s third outing with The Cherry Orchard. She is working her way through the women’s roles, having played Anya (Anna) and Varya (Wikitōria) and now Ranevskaya (Louisa), which she is very excited about!
