Jennifer Saunders leads silent stand on behalf of the UK theatre industry


Actress Jennifer Saunders has led a two-minute silence outside a West End theatre to draw attention to the “devastating” effect of the continued closures within the sector. The Absolutely Fabulous star, 62, was joined by a collection of actors, comedians, theatre directors and singers outside the shuttered Gielgud Theatre in Shaftesbury Avenue, London. Their “silent stand” – the latest in a series featuring a range of industry figures – called for theatres to be allowed to reopen without social distancing and highlighted a perceived lack of Government guidance on the issue.
