Theatre employment problems must be a trigger for change

In this report (in The Stage [£]) about ongoing turmoil at The Barbican, there’s this:

“Theatre workers with transferable skills transferred them. Now, they don’t appear to be rushing to transfer them back. Practically every producer and theatre manager I talk to at the moment speaks of shortages among skilled technical staff, wig makers, make-up artists and the like.

Meanwhile, those left in the sector are finding themselves understaffed and overstretched as theatre attempts to return to a similar level of activity that it pumped out pre-pandemic.”
