After lengthy negotiations WGGB has reached agreement with UK Theatre and negotiated a 6% increase on minimum fees.
This is a significant increase and is effective from 1 May 2014.
WGGB Theatre Committee Chair, Nick Wood said, “We welcome the agreement we’ve reached with UK Theatre and see it as a step in the right direction for UK playwrights at a time when the arts are under pressure from all sides.”
The negotiating team, which also includes representatives from the agents organisation PMA and Society of Scottish Playwrights, has been working to improve and update the 1993 TMA/WGGB/SSP agreement on subsidised theatre. We have made significant headway on this but there are still some areas where we have not reached agreement so further meetings will be held with UK Theatre.
