Today’s guest post from Holland House author Lynn Farley-Rose takes us back to the theatre and perceptions surrounding it:
“I think that men often have a sense of entitlement about getting into directing and that makes it easier for them. It is dominated by white Oxbridge-educated men and I didn’t realise how badly I needed a female role model until I was given one. The theatre industry is starting to shake itself up and that’s really exciting. There are a few amazing women in positions of power.”
