The impact of coronavirus on the infrastructure and people of theatre has been “enormous”, the artistic director of the Macrobert Arts Centre in Stirling has said.
Julie Ellen told Good Morning Scotland the centre at the University of Stirling was keen to reopen its doors to audiences, but only when it was safe to do so.
She said it was going to be difficult for theatres to open fully over the next few months as the logistics of theatre were already complex.
“Being able to turn up on a specific day at a specific theatre with a full cast that are all well is an enormous risk,” she said.
“We invest an awful lot in bringing work to an excellent standard to bring to audiences and it needs to have a certain level of surety about it.”
