Statement on Cinderella opening night not taking place as planned

"Equity is very saddened to hear that the opening night of Cinderella is not taking place as planned. This is concerning and disappointing for all those involved in the production, who will have worked extremely hard, both physically and emotionally, to prepare themselves for the first performance. We are in contact with our members and the producers of Cinderella, and hope that the show can re-open as soon as possible. 

"Due regard must be given by the Government to the industry's pleas to enable the opening of productions where it is safe to do so, and it must bring forward the planned changes to self-isolation rules. Please see our demand from 16 July calling for self-isolation rule changes to be brought forward."
