Frances McDormand and The Wooster Group Call Attention to “Fair Treatment for Theatre Labor”

OnLabor is excited to share that a post from this summer, “Fair Treatment for Theatre Labor: A Right to Perform Plays,” has attracted the attention of the performing arts community.  In a new video, noted actress Frances McDormand and members of The Wooster Group read from the post, which argues that “we should extend to theatre performers and audiences the same rights of access to our shared culture that we allow performers of music and readers of books.”  The post was authored by Catherine Fisk and Alisa Hart.  Catherine Fisk is Chancellor’s Professor of Law at the University of California, Irvine and an OnLabor Senior Contributor.  Alisa Hartz is a staff attorney at Public Counsel Opportunity Under Law in Los Angeles and has a Ph.D. in comparative literature.
