West End stars call for job shares to support working parents | Carousel, News | The Stage

Leading musical stars are calling on producers to implement job shares in the West End, claiming parents are currently being forced out of the industry. The performers claim that an extension of the current 'alternate' system in the West End - whereby actors share a role that is particularly demanding - could allow two leads to be jointly cast in a role in a production, split equally over a week, and on a shared salary.
