Theatre is at risk of losing a generation of talent: why we set up the Future Theatre Fund with TikTok

It was Michael Sheen who first showed me the power of theatre. His venomous, self-pitying, utterly lost Jimmy in the Royal Exchange’s 1995 production of Look Back in Anger, opened my self-absorbed, 15 year-old eyes – not just to hitherto unconsidered social issues but also to the idea that theatre could be an agent of change, in me, and also in the world.
