A new play from Three 4 All theatre company telling the
inspirational story of Alfred and Ada Salter, two people
devoted to Bermondsey. The story tells of their fight for
human rights and health for the people they lived amongst.
Set against a backdrop of slum dwellers in the first half of
the last century, the circumstances of the Salters' lives
can be seen in parallel with social problems of today. A new
kind of poverty, a change in the national ideals of our
global nation, the use of war, economic downfall, class
divide, health and wealth. The Salters proved that strong
moral values and integrity can walk hand-in-hand with
leadership.
