Actress Liz Carr has suggested theatres consider hosting separate performances of shows for audiences who still want to wear facemasks or socially distance. The Silent Witness star won best supporting actress at Sunday’s Oliviers for her role in The Normal Heart. As live audiences have mostly abandoned wearing masks, Carr suggested venues could offer “Covid-safer” performances. “Theatre should remain accessible even to those of us who have health conditions,” she told BBC News. Carr, who has used a wheelchair since she was seven, is one of the most high-profile disabled actors in the UK.
