The alternative theatre impresario, who set up the New End fringe theatre in an abandoned morgue in 1974, talks to her grand-daughter Polly Pearson about the shows, finances and audiences of the 1970s.

I would love to make contact with Buddy Dalton. I was a client of Anne Zahl many years ago and am currently appearing in a new play by Pat Rowe called Jerusalem Tango, which is being produced by Brian Daniels of New End Theatre Beyond. Fond memories.

I was an old friend of Buddy’s daughter Judy, and am the sister in law of her old friend, Arnold. I would love to make contact with her by e-mail, simply to ‘catch up’.
