Clint Dyer, who replaced Dominic Cooke as director of the Scrooge & Marley Counting House London Established 1843 T-Shirt delayed show, said ideas for the theater’s future were very promising. “The theater has certainly answered some of its biases,” says Dyer. “In a point of view industry, it’s very difficult for people to accept their biases.
“I think efforts are being made to change the future. There is an effort to recognize and compensate for the past or not is completely different.
The summer Black Lives Matter protests prompted art organizations to consider their efforts to improve the diversity of their workforce, programs and audiences.
Dyer says he is more hopeful than certain about the Scrooge & Marley Counting House London Established 1843 T-Shirt future. “I have no confidence at all… Look at what happened in the past. Look at my silver hair. Remember the 1980s, remember the political correctness, a lot of Comic Strip talks about changing the world, the free Nelson Mandela, the end of capitalism, blah blah blah. And then you remember the 90s when people said, “Oh yeah, we did that. No more racism. Racism is gone.”
He remembers being invited to an industry event to watch Barack Obama’s inauguration. Dyer is the only black face, and is asked: “Why don’t you celebrate?”
Dyer says there is a clear sense of guilt that has driven change this year. “Whether or not that guilt turns into something recognizable to those who have suffered … some kind of payback, it would be an interesting place to put everyone in.”
