The dream: the world of first nights, champagne, the roar of success.
The reality: too often, hours waiting by the phone for calls that never come.
10,000 actors and actresses are out of work - two out of every three. In an Equity report published last month it was revealed that even if only half of them draw unemployment benefit it costs the country Â£2 million a year. And Equity believes that control over entry into the profession, is, at least part of, the answer. Every year nearly 200 drama schools turn out more than 1,000 hopefuls to try and fill 400 jobs. Most will be lucky if they earn even a meagre living; most will achieve only disillusion and heart-break.
With three drama schools, actors and actresses, and leaders of the profession like John Neville and Hattie Jacques, we look tonight at the overcrowded profession.
