Tamara von Werthern
As theatres reopen, let’s allow ourselves to look forward – but also remember what we’ve learnedTamara von Werthern has been Performing Rights Manager at Nick Hern Books since 2005. She is also a playwright, screenwriter and theatre-maker.
The moment is finally here: as I write this, theatres across the UK have just been given the green light to reopen, including for indoor (though still socially distanced) performances. With the growing concern around the variant of Covid first detected in India, I’m very aware that by the time you read this at the start of June, everything might have gone into reverse gear. But right now, I’m sitting here (like so many of us, still working from home) looking out on my garden, the sky is blue, and the view looks greener and leafier every day… so let’s allow ourselves a precious bit of optimism, shall we? After all, Sardines is back in print – surely the sign of a return to normality we’ve all been waiting for!
