SDUK Statement re. National Theatre Wales

Stage Directors UK recognises that the recent open letter by forty playwrights to the Chair of National Theatre Wales has opened up an important point of discussion. We welcome the offer NTW has made to engage with the signatories of the letter and at a later stage, others in the artistic community. SDUK previously published research into the lack of opportunity for Welsh based directors, and we are following that up with more extensive research. In 2018 SDUK created a Welsh hub for members; we continue to support theatre directors in Wales and will support NTW wherever we can assist in establishing and responding to our members needs.
