There really are no words that a theatre collaboration can give in terms of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Beyond the immediate tragic impact of millions of deaths, the closure of almost all public spaces, and the sad and untimely closure of thousands of businesses; there has been a corollary of an incredibly tough time for arts professionals. Whilst no collective (such as groups of people) can legitimately claim to have suffered; save the individuals themselves involved - it has been a traumatic time for almost everyone in the world.
How then do we turn the page and look forward? ottisdotter won't change the world, for instance, but what we can do is bring theatre back in our own small way and invest in talented professionals who want to bring life back to normal.
