Culture minister defends Lithuania's theatre reform

Minister of Culture Šarūnas Birutis has dismissed actors' concerns over the reform plan for national and state theatres that has been prepared by the ministry. The reform would turn theatres into public undertakings and actors would work under fixed term contracts. The minister says the present situation must change so that actors earn more and have better working conditions.
