Edward Alleyn: The Man Who Built Dulwich

This week we talked about some of the statues in South London and you can listen to that here.
One of the statues we discussed is the one of Edward Alleyn in the grounds of the school that bears his name in Dulwich with the statue itself depicting Alleyn showing the foundations of the school to a young boy.
Alleyn made his name and fortune as an actor in Elizabethan England and was played by Ben Affleck in Shakespeare in Love
