In 2014, Equity launched the professional, professionally paid campaign and a new agreement for actors and stage directors working on the sidelines. But what about directors and designers? What would a marginal agreement look like for the creative team, and how can we work together to improve standards for directors and designers on the margins? Join Equity, The Association of Lighting Designers, Stage Directors UK and Society of British Theatre Designers to talk about what you want to see in a marginal agreement for the creative team and what we can do to expand equity work on the margins. Representatives of the union and the three professional organizations will present the meeting, and then it is up to you to share your ideas on what the right contracts should be in the fringe theatre. Share contracts for individual members generally cover positions in three categories: Principal, Chorus and Stage Manager. The main contract is used for all the main actors and most of the stage directors. The choir contract is used for actors who mainly do choral work. Each employment contract is referred to a specific collective agreement and contains all its conditions. Equity members are professionals: qualified people who bring their experience and talent to every job. They deserve to be treated with the respect that workers in other sectors consider self-government. You deserve a decent wage. That`s why we fight professionally. So here`s our written agreement.
It is online for you to see and, as we hope, download and use. Read it carefully. If you are an interpreter, you make certain obligations. It`s the same if you`re a producer or a theatre band. We really believe that good quality companies can use this contract to show the players that they are serious about treating them with respect and that they are therefore respected by the performers. So what? Well, we can all focus on doing good theatre without worrying about what might happen if the unexpected happens during our productions.

RSVP: Please confirm your participation by email: firstname.lastname@example.org We think it is bad for both parties, as it means that no one has any protection or recourse. This means that there is no control and balance of producers, and there is nothing to prevent the actors from coming out of the shows.
