Theatres Trust comment on Stage 4 of the government’s theatre roadmap

Following the news last night that theatres may now reopen with socially distanced audiences, marking Stage 4 of the government’s 5-stage roadmap, I’m pleased to share a statement from the Theatres Trust.

Jon Morgan, director of Theatres Trust, comments:

Theatres Trust is pleased that theatres have been given the go-ahead for socially distanced indoor performances. We hope that those theatres impacted by the delay will be able to resume with the shows originally planned. However, while this is a step in the right direction, it is just a small step. The majority of theatres will not be able to reopen while social distancing is still in place and with no decision on this being made until November at the earliest, the theatre sector is still in very grave danger of irreparable damage.
