Director Werner Herzog, actor Danny Sapani, Watford bookclub

Werner Herzog has made over 70 films, from the ambitious feature film Fitzcarraldo to the documentary Grizzly Man. From Los Angeles he discusses his latest project, Family Romance LLC, a fictional film set in Tokyo about a real company that loans out actors to impersonate family members or imitation friends ‘to create illusions to make clients’ lives better’. The town of Watford is joining together to form a huge book club, reading Katharine McMahon’s novel The Hour of Separation, which is set in the town, for the One Town, One Book initiative. We speak to Watford resident and reader Helen Nicell about why she’s taking part and Katharine McMahon about why Watford was the perfect setting for her book and how she’s feeling about getting feedback from local residents. NT At Home's latest free production is the 2016 staging of Les Blancs, Lorraine Hansbury’s posthumous play about one man’s place in an African country struggling for independence from British colonialism. Hansbury was the first black female playwright to have a play on Broadway. We speak to Danny Sapani who plays Tshembe.
