Scottish Theatres In Revolt

The amateur Scottish theatre association is organizing protests against the Scottish Arts Council for its funding cuts announced last week. “The Scottish Community Drama Association (SCDA), a clearing house for some 200 drama clubs across Scotland that was founded in 1926, was told this week that it will lose its £58,000 annual grant. The money is a tiny fraction of the SAC’s £60 million annual budget, but its loss left the mostly volunteer association shell-shocked.”
