Joint Statement From The Theatre Industry

Joint Statement from the Theatre Industry

UK Theatre and SOLT logos

Following the reports and allegations of  the last two weeks, first in America and, more recently, closer to home, we have come together to make clear that there can be no place for sexual harassment or abuse of power in our industry.

We salute the bravery of everyone who calls out this abusive behaviour. We support a theatre culture that empowers people to speak up: a culture where abuse of power is always challenged.

We are committed to working together to ensure that theatre is a safe space for all, where everyone is respected and listened to. The Royal Court Theatre’s Day of Action on Saturday 28 October is one important part of this process.  Together, we are developing further ways to support people to speak up and to hold others to account.

It is the responsibility of the industry to create and nurture a culture where unacceptable behaviour is swiftly challenged and addressed.

We want to be absolutely clear and say again: there is no room for sexual harassment or abuse of power in the theatre.  Everyone deserves to enjoy a happy, healthy and safe working environment. We will support you to speak out, and we will hear you when you do.
