It has recently be reported that cast members within live events have been subject to campaign of abuse. This is an unfortunate risk we all take putting ourselves in the public eye. However it is this abuse and harassment that leave many in need of counselling and other fear for their lives as they come and go from the workplace.

This behaviour is not exclusive to letter writing or fans at stage door. For some actors it happens in their own towns. People leave abusive messages, spread false rumours and sadly leads to actors having to move out of their home towns for their own safety.

I wondered if you had had any experience of abuse while working in theatre? Is there anything that can be done to protect cast and crew from this kind of behaviour?
