THE HORTON CONNECTION

Oscar quartet plead for more theatre subsidy

Date: Fri, 16 Feb 2007 11:28:06 -0500
From: Geralyn Horton g.l.horton@mindspring.com
Subject: Theatre Subsidy in a "virtuous circle" supports money-and-prestige movies...

Britain's finest hopes for the Oscars - Dames Helen Mirren and Judi Dench, director Stephen Frears and writer Patrick Marber - are calling on the government to continue its support for British theatre. Their extraordinary success in cinema would never have been possible, they say, without the training ground and support of publicly subsidised theatre, which could be under threat if arts funding is frozen or reduced this summer, as feared.
