England’s National Theatre has shelved plans to tour mainland Europe and this time it has nothing to do with COVID-19.

Now that Great Britain is no longer a member of the EU, actors, musicians and crews can’t work freely across the continent unless they have proper visas and work permits.

Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart and Dame Julie Walters have now signed a letter which urges Prime Minister Boris Johnson to negotiate new terms with the EU that would allow “creative practitioners,” like themselves, “to travel to the EU visa-free for work.”

Britain’s Culture minister says they’re awaiting further details of ongoing negotiations in hopes that in future British artists will be able to return to mainland Europe visa and work permit free.
