Chairperson, Lynne Tracey talks about future plans – Sunday Times
July 13th, 2020

Our Chairperson, Lynne Tracey, has contributed to Fiona Charleton’s article in the Sunday Times about the future of the Irish theatre industry post lockdown:

“We will bring theatre wherever is the right place for us to be,” 

“digital theatre is not actually theatre. Theatre is unedited, theatre is live,” 

– Lynne Tracey, Chair of The New Theatre board of director.

 

 

 

 

 

Read the relevant excerpt below, or view the article here:
‘Lynne Tracey, the chairwoman of the New Theatre in Temple Bar, hopes that being small means it can be flexible. “Not having the day-to-day work gave scope to thinking, and Anthony Fox [its artistic director] has reimagined the space,” she says. One of its forthcoming projects is a performance of Gerard Humphreys’s play Jackie, about Jackie Kennedy, which it hopes to stage in St Stephen’s Green. “We will bring theatre wherever is the right place for us to be,” she says.

The New Theatre tried digital media with its Fight Back Festival but, although happy to have done it, Tracey is aware of growing online fatigue.
“One thing that came out of it is that digital theatre is not actually theatre. Theatre is unedited, theatre is live,” she points out.’

– Fiona Charleton, Sunday Times.
