Exactly this. It's good news, but there is a lot to work out. But hopefully there is now a bit more than a ghost light in the darkness.

So, some good news. How it trickles down through the industry is unclear, but this looks promising for Weds. I only hope it is enough.

It's not a rich industry. Reserves without weeks of planned income deplete quickly. Venues, companies, people in the business are in crisis, losing their jobs, living each day in uncertainty.

Never tried going to the theatre? Have you watched comedy, cabaret, drag, dance, been to a pop or classical concert, a panto, a reading, an interview? Seen street shows or something in the park? Now imagine that gone.

The audiences. Yes, WE prices are high, but there are discount and group rates, schemes for lower-paid patrons, accessible initiatives. Then the regionals, fringe and pub venues which support community engagement, education, new writers and performers.

Now, about those FOH and backstage. Ushers, bar and merch staff, set builders, costume and make-up, lighting and sound, box office, catering ... do you think these (many freelance) are wealthy "luvvies"?
