"Last summer I broke my wrist when an aerial slide collapsed during rehearsals. Even though the company in question was not operating Equity contracts, Equity still took up the case on my behalf as I am a fully paid up member. They are covering all legal costs and Equity's solicitors are making a claim for compensation."
"I was freelancing on a Theatre in Education show earlier in the year but did not receive payment once the show had finishes. After more than seven weeks of chasing the company for the money and being fobbed off on each occasion, I told them I was going to contact Equity about the non-payment. The cheque arrived the next day."
