DETERMINED: New Theatre’s Anthony Fox – Mail on Sunday
May 21st, 2020

It was typical of the small New Theatre, in Essex Street, Dublin, that it led the way in streaming online even before The Abbey…as part of its Fight Back Festival.

Our audiences supported us with the festival’ says theatre director Anthony Fox. ‘The Take Your Seats donation site was a huge support…
‘We couldn’t have achieved the success we did without it. We had over 40,000 engagements online, and all the artists involved will be paid. Seventy percent of donations will go to them. It all helps sustainability, but artists will require long-term support…’
‘Our box office supplies 55/60% of our income…’
‘Considering the uncertainty it’s even possible to try getting some kind of line-up for the future,’ he says…

First on the list is Jackie, by Gerard Humphreys, about Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of JFK. It deals with the friendship she had with… a chaplain she met in Ireland in 1950 and who became her spiritual adviser…

‘With the new distancing regulations, our seating capacity will reduce from 68 to 25. It will be a challenge, but no matter it’s easier than working in an ICU ward!’ “

– Michael Moffat, MAIL ON SUNDAY
