At this uncertain moment in theatre’s history we feel luckier than ever that we have The Arts Council – with its history of supporting creative work all around the country – and the National Lottery helping to fund it. Making a tangible difference during this tough time the Arts Council has responded with a £160 Million Emergency Response Fund, 90% of which is down to National Lottery players. Libby Brodie Productions has been given a grant to fund some of our projects in production – so that even now the work will continue and when theatre can eventually be seen live again we will have shows at the ready. This isn’t the first time #LBP has received funding from brilliant forward-thinking trusts and funds. We have been supported in our other productions such as the record-breaking live reading of Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four, watched by over 9,000 globally online; the global premiere of Titas Halder’s Run The Beast Down; An immersive adaptation of Orwell’s Down And Out Live where we worked with refugees in Paris and members of the homeless community in London and the workshop of our commissioned play Baby Bomb by Frankie Meredith. When you support the Arts you support creativity but also an industry which provides work for thousands and billions to the economy. So thank you to the Arts Council, National Lottery and all the lottery players out there!
