Everyone Theatre Ep 5 - Tom Copley


This week’s everyone theatre interview is a little bit different. With all due respect, Tom Copley, a London-wide London Assembly Member for the Labour Group in City Hall, is not really a ‘leading theatre practitioner’! However, Tom is running a GLA investigation into the challenges faced by small theatres in London and has a strong personal interest in theatre. Tom has actually guest blogged for us in the past about his investigation, but he very kindly took some time out from his politician’s schedule to chat with us about why he loves theatre, and why small theatres in London are so important to him. Naturally, his hugely important investigation is also discussed.
