ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Theatre in Canberra is still thriving amid changing rules of the pandemic | ABC News” – below is their description.

A Sydney-based group of actors has been driven by bus to Canberra with permission from ACT Health to ensure their scheduled performance of American Psycho could go ahead this weekend.

The Canberra Theatre is hosting the show and worked with health authorities to find a way for the event to go ahead in spite of the growing COVID-19 cluster in Sydney and the lockdown imposed on about five million people.

When the lockdown began, the ACT government banned Greater Sydney residents from visiting the capital and imposed stay-at-home orders on returning Canberrans.
