My theatre matters.

28 January 2013

Equity members will play a leading part in a nation-wide campaign with theatre audiences aimed at persuading local councils not to cut support for their theatres, the Equity Council has agreed. Most theatres have faced central Government cuts, and there may be more to come, but the immediate threat is cuts from local authorities. The campaign, to be known as My Theatre Matters! and to be launched this Spring by Equity, the Theatrical Management Association and The Stage, will ask audience members to make the case for council support for their theatres.

To read about this and more, including about the new structure for Equity committees, please download the Council Report for the meeting of the Equity Council on 22 January which is now available in the Member Resources area of the Equity web site at
