WELLBEING

Theatre can bring emotions to the surface. It’s important to look after your mental health when this happens. Theatre Works would like to remind you that there are always numbers you can call. Working in the performing arts can be tough, and COVID-19 continues to greatly impact the entire sector.

Sometimes performances will affect us in ways we don’t expect. Please feel free to leave your seat and relax in the foyer if this happens to you. We have tea, couches, cushions and books at the ready. There is no judgement here.   

If you or someone you care about is in crisis or at immediate risk, dial 000.
