On stage performances in NYC include Beatrice in Much Ado About Nothing, Anna in a touring musical of Pope John Paul II’s The Jeweler’s Shop, and the premiere's of The Summerhouse & George Cameron Grant's Gratitude. West Coast favorites include leading roles in two of Kieron Barry's plays: Anna in Tomorrow in the Battle and a wickedly delightful role of Rachel in Why Are We In Afghanistan. Allison is thrilled to be digging back in to Kieron’s work now in the role of Jennifer. She is the founder of a bi-coastal play reading series called Stripped Scripts. Allison would like to thank her family for their endless support in all forms and Beckham for his delicate push to leap off the cliff full footedly into this dream. allisonthreadgold.com

Kieron Barry: (Playwright) was born in Stratford-upon-Avon. He survived a disastrous education at Glebelands School in Cranleigh and went on to take degrees at the University of Durham and Goldsmiths’ College, London.   His plays include the verbatim drama Stockwell, which enjoyed two sell-out runs in London. It was described by The Times in its five-star review as ‘more gripping than anything else to be seen in the London theatre’ and by the Daily Express as ‘stark, stunning... deeply poignant... one of the most important plays of the year.’ The play prompted Barry's nomination for the Charles Wintour Award for Most Promising Playwright at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards.   He is also the author of the one-act comedy Numbers, described as ‘sharp and funny, terrifying and inspiring’ in Lucy Kerbel’s book 100 Great Plays For Women where it appeared alongside plays by Oscar Wilde, Tennessee Williams and Euripides.  His other plays include Black Soap, Cumquats, Why Are We In Afghanistan? and In Kinshasa A Baboushka Makes Moussaka In Her Larder. www.Facebook.com/KieronBarry.net/

Jonathan Sanford was born in Baltimore, Maryland and started piano lessons at Unseld’s School at the age of six. He moved on to violin before deciding on the saxophone at age nine. Jonathan went on to study classical saxophone, under the tutelage of Dr. Frederick Hemke at Northwestern University, where he was also a member of the 1996 Big Ten Championship Football Team. While in school, he wrote an original musical as well as an experimental musical adaptation of Alice in Wonderland. He was a member of Chicago funk mainstay acts, Sweet Sweet Candy and Fly Williams, as a saxophonist and rapper, releasing albums with both bands. On the coattails of an appearance on General Hospital, Sanford made the move to Los Angeles, where he currently resides. He continued playing saxophones in local acts until he made the switch to electronic music and composition, writing and performing with the eclectic Mr. Tiny’s Electric Toy Band. Jonathan was a founding member of the new music group Collide, along with Third Coast Percussion member David Skidmore and concert pianist Jade Simmons. The group served as artist in residence at Georgia Tech, worked with a musical performing robot at Yale, and debuted a work from Princeton professor Dmitri Tymoczko. In addition to his work with bands, Jonathan has shared the stage with legendary artists, Max Roach, Eddie Palmieri, Danilo Perez, and Bobby McFerrin. Sanford’s new joy is composing and producing music for film and advertisements, as well as producing records with independent pop artists.
