A walk through London’s dark theatres in the time of pandemic.
Standing By started as a photo essay with images captured in theatres during lockdown. These images, capturing a unique moment in time, have been published in a limited edition hardback book alongside stories from cast and crew who were in the theatres when they closed with a foreword by Bonnie Langford.
The Dark Theatres Project is raising funds for Theatre Professionals who have lost their livelihood during COVID-19.
The Dark Theatres Project fundraiser will help four theatrical charities to support workers and buildings until they can return. Their nominated charities are: BackUp, The Theatrical Guild, The Theatres Trust, Acting for Others. Each of these charities supports backstage and technical theatre workers, actors and theatre buildings.
