American Theatre – The Chicago advocacy organization Not in Our House (NIOH) joins theatres across the country in combatting sexual harassment.
“The theatrical unions’ and guilds’ existing processes for addressing this kind of unacceptable behavior are inadequate. There is a sense that the response from unions and theatres has been non-existent or insufficient. In addition, the unions and guilds take the position that if an act of violence or harassment happens outside of the theatre or after work they have no jurisdiction. However, the two people involved will most likely have to work together the next day or in another production.”
