 Politic Man

“Can you ever separate the personal from the political? Is it right to stick to your convictions even if it means sacrificing those closest to you?”

Following a successful debut at the Loft in the Ugly Duck Creative Space, Bermondsey in December, Three 4 All Theatre Company is proud to announce its London Tour of ‘Politic Man’ at various venues from January 20th. And coming to the Brockway Room, Conway Hall on Sat January 28th.

A true story. Poignant. Devastating and highly relevant for today. It tells the story of Bermondsey MP Alfred Salter and his wife Ada and how politics transformed their community yet shattered their private lives.


Set against a backdrop of slum dwellers in the first half of the last century, the play portrays Alfred Salter as he searches for a “bigger voice” in parliament as a member of the fledgling Labour Party.
Mistrusted by many on the other side of the House and within his own party, Salter strives to boldly represent the people that he and his family live amongst. Against the odds, the teetotal pacifist wins in public life but in private, he and his wife suffer an unimaginable loss.


“All credit then to Alison Mead who’s not only done some incredible research but is well on the way to sculpting the dry facts into an epic, family and political saga.”
“This show took more risks in portraying Dr. Salter, and his wife Ada to a lesser extent, as flawed heroes. The use of Dr. Salter’s brother as a narrator was a particularly effective dramatic device: the contrasting, and conflicting, personalities of the two brothers added much to the dramatic tension… Well worth seeing.”
“This seemed to me to be an important play right now, speaking with eloquence, intelligence and heart about the importance of goodness and principle in the face of evil and cynicism.”

All seats £10 (+ booking fee). Book online at
