PEAR PEOPLE POLICY
Those of us who have worked at the Pear over the years are proud of our legacy as a warm, friendly, safe space where artists can work together harmoniously to create exciting, intelligent, imaginative theatre. We have instituted this Pear People Policy (PPP) to support and protect people who work at the Pear. Further, we have instituted a Concern Resolution Path (CRP) to assist our people when an issue does come up.
This policy statement is based in part on a document produced by notinourhouse.org , creator of the Chicago Theatre Standards, which were developed from the input from a large and experienced group of theatre producers and artists working together in the Chicago area.
These standards are now used by many theatres nationwide.
