Theatre is a powerful, collaborative art form. Welcoming and empowering new creatives through accessible routes is the only way to enrich it.

When this guest writer for Broadway World was first starting out as a director, the most frequent advice from mentors was "the best way to learn more about directing is to see loads of theatre." Easier said then done when ticket prices continue to be a financial barriers for so many people who would love to be patrons of the arts.

This article talks about the author's own efforts to combat the inaccessible nature of seeing theatre as a young person or someone who doesn't have money to spare on arts and culture events.

Guest Blog: ‘Theatre is a Powerful, Collaborative Art Form’: Director Vicky Moran on Accessibility, Underrepresentation and her Latest Play, £1 THURSDAYS
When I read £1 Thursdays by Kat Rose-Martin, I was immediately drawn to the first thing in the script which says ‘none of the characters should be presented as rough. They graft and have it hard but they take pride in who they are. Swearing is a part of their everyday language and should be treat as so’. I loved this.

Thank you for being here. 💚
