Re-release Episode 12: Not In Our House!

2016 was a wild year for Chicago Theatre.  With The Reader’s expose of long term abuses occurring at Profiles Theatre, a major discussion began about conduct and safety for non-union artists.  Two Chicago actresses, fed up with the horrifying stories they’d heard over their careers, started Not In Our House, a movement to empower artists to advocate for themselves.  One of the major accomplishment was the Chicago Theatre Standards, a code of conduct that theatres can choose to employ to prevent the kinds of abuses that happened at Profiles.  The CTS is currently in a pilot program being tested by a number of theatres in Chicago.

Hear Lori Meyers and Laura T. Fisher talk about how NIOH got started and where it’s gone from there.
