Liverpool’s Royal Court would like to add our voice of support to George Floyd’s grieving family and community and stands in solidarity with Black Lives Matter in seeking justice and equality.
We acknowledge that there is a serious problem within the theatre industry and with us as a part of that industry. Two years ago, together with Miriam Mussa and Maurice Bessman, we helped to set up Boisterous Theatre Company to showcase the work of BAME actors, writers, creatives and producers.
It is no longer enough for us simply to stand up and condemn racism: we must be actively anti-racist.
We commit to doing more as an organisation to redress the imbalance within our industry
We commit to actively working and to continually reflect, listen and learn to be actively anti racist and to do everything we can to bring about positive change
Black Lives Matter.
