Designing and creating theatre is a massively enjoyable hobby, but it can be stressful. Especially in Oxford, the rapid turnover of production teams, cast and crew means that people are thrown together, and famously, something in the production always goes wrong. We’re hoping that the thing that goes wrong isn’t welfare, and hopefully the resources on this page will help.
The current welfare rep is Paula McGechan, who you can contact at welfare[at}outts.org. They are very happy to talk about anything at any time.
Doing Theatre Safely in the Face of COVID-19
The TAFF COVID-19 Safety Guidelines summarise the latest Government and University guidance, to help you make sure that your production follows the rules and, more importantly, is as safe as it can be.
Since guidance changes regularly, make sure you check the original sources to stay up to date, and look out for parallel guidance from OUDS and the UDO, as well as venues.
