Open Book Management (OBM) is a means of promoting ethical pay for people working in the Theatre industry, and the self-regulation practice of Theatre companies in London working by a set of principals. The self governing principals of The New Actors Company in relation to OBM are explained below.

    Safe Environment

    Fringe theatre is a theatrical training ground for individuals who are making their first steps into the Industry. Therefore it should be a safe environment and free from exploitative individuals and unethical companies.

    Artist Agreements

    If The New Actors Company does not have Arts Council or enough private funding to allow us to pay a running wage, the least we can do is offer a profit share agreement to our artists.

    Honoring Agreements

    If an agreement is made to an actor or technical artist, that agreement will always be honoured.

    The profit share will always be equal and reasonable and will be conducted transparently.
