Alison Quigan


Though probably best known for her seven years playing Shortland Street receptionist Yvonne Jeffries, theatre has long been Alison Quigan's second home. During 18 years as artistic director at Palmerston North's Centrepoint Theatre she acted, directed 60 plus plays, and programmed many Kiwi titles. Quigan has also written extensively for the stage, and acted in a number of memorable roles for Auckland Theatre Company.

These two actors are simply electric on stage. Their experience and talent smack you right between the eyes. I spend rehearsals gobsmacked, go home exhausted, and I haven’t done a thing. Conjugal Rites director Kate Louise Elliott on actors Quigan and Tim Bartlett , 1 April 2011 Manawatu Standard
