It was wonderful to see the community theatre, The Masque Theatre, heed the call to support the #LiightSAred campaign – to get the events/arts industry up and riding – safe and sustainable. The beautiful sea side theatre was lit up in red on August 5, 2020, as part of the campaign. See photo,

It is not easy to chart the way forward, for theatre, For now, the Masque has put out a call in its newsletter, inviting submissions for one and two hander works- which may be possible to stage – with social distancing and reduced audiences. For info specs, e-mail: The management is upbeat and hopeful that ways and means may be found to raise the curtain – soon.
