Unison on board
Following on from their support for the debut of Waiting for Brando in 2012, Unison North West have confirmed their
commitment to the arts by supporting our production in 2013. It’s fitting that we have support from a union, as central to the concerns of the play are the themes of brotherhood, solidarity and betrayal. This plays out on a personal level for the characters, but is also designed to spark discussion among audiences about contemporary issues; in society, in the workplace, and in response to developments that affect our daily lives – taxes, the banks, employment legislation and the Bedroom Tax, to name but a few.
Unison North-West Regional Secretary Kevan Nelson says, ‘Unison are proud to sponsor Waiting for Brando. Our support for this unique play represents just one part of our work with other unions and the NorthWest TUC to build a renewed engagement with the arts.’
Now more than ever, support for the arts from unions, trusts and businesses is needed, particularly by small productions, trying to get their creative work to see the light of day. Unison North West is one of the more enlightened bodies that understands that Unions and arts-based organisations have an affinity and can work together to engage with and enrich the cultural experience of their members. We are enormously grateful for their support and excited to be working with them again.
