Modern British theatre performance is proud of its tradition in the history of theatre. Facing the challenges from the visual technological innovation and the Covid-19 pandemic, the commercial playing industry has faced a clear decline in the past three years. The government accordingly works in several ways to guide and stimulate British theatre to regain its audiences. By comparing different departments of the government or parliament of the UK, this article argues that the basic features to improve the British theatre market lie in the development and collaboration of the tourist industry, the immersive theatre innovation and financial support of government. The role of the guiding government is gradually becoming more aggressive.
