The 2003 ‘Regime Change’ season at Shakespeare’s Globe saw the theatre belatedly extend its original practices experiments – which had included a number of productions with all-male casts – to a single-sex, women-led company, performing Richard III and The Taming of the Shrew in repertory. Phyllida Lloyd joined the project late in the day after Barry Kyle left the production, and the result (as seen on the archive video at Shakespeare’s Globe) is a joyful, comic, and playfully satirical take on the play that celebrates the bodies and improvisatory skill of the company’s women.U.S. Polo - FALKS4170S8_S1 Grey 40RHFDVGDS fashion shoes Ladies shoes sexy Super sequin heels night club Waterproof light shoes.Comfortable and beautiful ladies sandals Sandals Plastic Simple Summer Female blueeSingle shoesPeony red Embroidered Velvet Slipper Woman Pointed Toe Mixed color Fashion Flats Lady Lazy Muller shoes Woman in Summer.

Petruchio (Janet McTeer) shows his true colours, controlling Katherina (Kathryn Hunter) with tight embraces.

For Lloyd’s company, men are a species unto themselves. Even rival suitors Hortensio (Yolanda Vazquez) and Gremio (Penelope Dimind) slap one another’s backs and share mutually reinforcing shouts and grunts. Petruchio, when he emerges in the imposing six-foot form of Janet McTeer, A-Tu Summer Women's High HeelLAIGEDANZI Women Shiny Diamond Med Heels Sandals GirlSexy Transparent Pointed Toe Flip Flop Casual Jelly shoesis the most alpha of the males, embodying a slightly swaggering but entirely self-possessed confidence that brooks no argument.

This commedia-inflected production plays the Shrew fairly straight, for laughs, and without the induction that might give it an ironic frame. Instead, any critique and irony comes from within the performances themselves, as the company allow the play to be a comedy but allow that comedy to push to uncomfortable places. Kathryn Hunter’s Katherina is a spoiled woman-child, stamping her feet and shouting wordlessly when she doesn’t get her way,shoes Female Autumn Spring New Pointed Boots Simple Boots High Heel Matte Leather Small Size and Bare Boots Women's BootsMKJYDM Women's shoes High Heels Four Seasons Work shoes Stiletto Heels Leather Pointed shoes Stiletto shoes 34-39 Yards Women's high Heels (color Gun color, Size 37 EU) and in the early scenes Petruchio brilliantly turns this against her when informing the other men that they have agreed she will do this – when she stamps, the men clap and cheer her; when she shouts, they turn it into a huzzah, depriving her of her best weapons. Her abuse of her sister Bianca (Laura Rogers) is thorough and quite violent, but this comes from justifiable resentment at the clear favouritism of her father Baptista (Anna Healy). Katherina has undeniable problems, but watching her passed over by her father and gaslit by her wooer is still hard to watch.

During the second half, at Petruchio’s house, the strategies are very clear and centred around food. In a clever move, Lloyd brings onstage Petruchio’s spaniel Troilus, an actor in a dog costume, who takes an immediate dislike to Katherina; Katherina tries to flee from the dog, Mo Duo Sweet Wedding shoes Platform Sandals Party shoes Heels Sandals Thin Heels Women SandalsSummer Gladiator Sandals Women shoes Peep Toe Lace Up shoes Woman Tassel Square High Heel Sandalias women Big Size 33-43then beats it with a broom, leaving it whimpering away to get the sympathy of the servants.

Later, as a reward, Petruchio gives Katherina some food, but then embraces her and coddles her while Hortensio finishes it off. And increasingly it becomes obvious that Petruchio is treating Katherina exactly like his dog, right down to the whistles and shouts of ‘Here’.

The comedy of the production is sincere, then, but leads to uncomfortable positions. Hunter’s virtuoso physical skills allow her to be tumbled upside down when she fights against Petruchio, and to be carried around the stage in all kinds of undignified postures;GIY Women Winter Motorcycle Ankle Boots Ladies Round Toe Cow Suede Leather Boots Warm Lace Up Plush Flat Short BootsBoys' Nike Cortez Basic SL (TD) Toddler shoes - Footwear Kid's Footwear Kid's yet the audience’s laughter seems to doubly imply both recognition of her skill and enjoyment of her subjugation. The applause of the audience in the archive video after Katherina comes to Petruchio at his command seems sincere, as it the audience are approving the taming. It’s a microcosm of a production in which men are consistently awful throughout, but always mutually congratulatory.

The standout sequence, though, is Katherina’s final speech. At Petruchio’s command,Winter shoes Men Boots Ankle bota Masculina Leather Man shoes rain Snow Boot Plus Size she gives a speech of a few lines, and gets applause and approval from her husband. But then she goes for another few lines, and another, and another. An increasingly anxious Petruchio tries to get her to be quiet, but she begins exaggerating the speech more and more, getting up on the banquet table and flashing her legs, and finally lying down in a mockery of Petruchio,JOHNSON PUMP ELECTRO MAGNETIC FLOAT SWITCH 12VLadies Flat shoes Summer Women's shoes Fashion Pointed shoes Court shoes Black Party shoes Shallow Sandals Holiday Low Heel shoes Temperament Elegant (color Black, Size 39 US8) before flouncing offstage.GIY Womens Pointed Toe Lace Up Ankle Boots PU Leather Slip On Combat Oxford Chunky High Heel Ankle Boots We see a glimpse of them having a fight in Italian, suggesting that Katherina is far from ‘tamed’, and indeed will continue to assert herself against Petruchio indefinitely, even as she learns to play the game of this patriarchal world. It’s a quiet reclamation of the play, but a potent one.

Following the arrest of serial killer Gregory Sallinger (Jeremy Bobb) in the previous episode, MATTIOLO Women's intertwining Fashion Thong Sandals Made in ABSOLUTE FOOTWEAR Ladies Womens Suede Sheepskin Moccasins Slippers with Rubber Sole - Navy - 8 USfollowing by the realisation that Sallinger’s caution has ensured that there isn’t enough evidence for the police to put him away, ‘A.K.A. The Double Half-Wappinger’ begins the second half of the season with a surprisingly upbeat episode. With the sounds of Sallinger accusing Jessica – a powered person – of ‘cheating’ ringing in the viewer’s ears, this episode shows Jessica and her team at hard work, with multiple pay-offs.

A moment of triumph, not cheating.34-38 Women Sexy Party Super High Heels Platform Fish Toe Sandals,GIY Women's Increased Height Sneakers Slip On shoes Faux Leather Casual Walking Flat Platform Penny Loafers

Sallinger’s crimes, and the fact that Hogarth (Carrie-Anne Moss) has taken him on as a client to help boost publicity for her struggling law firm, force everyone to up their game, and the benefit of this is that the subplots are starting to come together. Malcolm (Eka Darville), can’t reconcile his job as Hogarth’s fixer with his moral compass, and begins working actively against the new client; however, when Hogarth entrusts the job of chasing down the masked vigilante who seems to be targeting her clients to Zaya (Tiffany Mack), Malcolm’s girlfriend soon finds CCTV suggesting that Malcolm and the unknown woman have a connection, setting up further internal conflict for later in the season.

The Alias team, however, seems to be back together. Malcolm gets Trish’s permission to see Jessica’s background on Sallinger – rightly held up by the increasingly hilarious and competent Gillian (Aneesh Sheth, the season’s MVP so far) – and begins tracing the killer, while Jessica( Krysten Ritter) and Trish (Rachael Taylor) head out of town to see if they can turn up information about Sallinger’s early kills, in the hope that he will have been more careless with them.GIY Women's Pointed Toe Vegan Suede Ankle Boots Elastic Chunky Stacked Block Heel Platform Short BootiesGIY Women's Flat Ballet Loafer Oxford shoes Ankle Buckle Strappy Round Toe Studded Rivets Fashion shoes On the way Jessica encounters prejudice from a small-town police officer (Mary B. McCann), and Trish stages a hilarious meltdown in her car as a distraction while Jessica steals case files (‘I psychologically cannot cope’; ‘I’m so triggered right now!’). But they track down a lead to the disappearance of Sallinger’s high school wrestling partner, Nathan.

The scenes at Nathan’s home are genuinely affecting. Manuel and Ana (Mateo Gómez and Leticia Castillo) ring true, the former desperate to connect to anyone who might help find their son, the latter wanting it all behind her. There is much too neat a series of steps here, as Jessica notices a card from Sallinger picturing Nathan in the back garden, where a new gazebo fits; there’s an impressive display of Jessica’s powers as she upends the gazebo with one hand and smashes through the earth to find a sports bag with Nathan’s corpse in, but the speed and ease of the clues is disappointing. Nonetheless,RTwkvv Hot Air Balloon Pattern Womens Sneakers Lightweight Breathable Mesh Sport Gym Walking shoesFuntasma Sexy Knee High Boots Large (9-10) Black Larry Teng’s sensitive direction privileges the grief of the parents and Jessica’s conflicted reactions over the pain she causes them even as she finds what may be the crucial piece of evidence.

Sallinger co-opts a press interview to condemn Jessica and her unknown partner as vengeance feminists, targeting an innocent white man.

While this seems like an obvious trap, Jessica stays in control of the situation: buoyed by the girls cheering for the sight of a young woman beating a middle-aged man, she lets Sallinger exert his frustrated energy on her before casually pinning him to the mat, ignoring his rules about body slamsDC Women's Pure SE Sneaker PurpleWedding Thin Heels White Diamond Glittering Evening Dress Sandals Bride shoes Pumps Party.GIY Women's Flat Saddle Oxford shoes Wingtip Perforated Lace Up Low Heel Vintage School Oxfords BroguesGIY Women's Knee High Slouchy Boot Side Buckle Faux Leather Winter Flat Casual Dress Boot Riding Boots It’s highly reminiscent of the climactic confrontation of Captain Marvel, the woman refusing to play by the man’s rules or to diminish her own power to be ‘fair’ to the man. And it closes the episode on a surprisingly happy note.

Sallinger may be physically unthreatening, but he’s already proven himself to be a master of exploiting other people’s weaknesses, and the team has a long way to go before it’s strong.

Gentleman Jack season 1 is a brilliantly constructed series, charting the ideal arc of a romance and culminating, in the season finale, with an air-punching, golden glow of a happy ending. It’s an unsurprising ending for a period romance, but thrilling in its full investment in a queer relationship, given all the trappings of any good BBC or HBO programme. Beautifully acted and directed, the confidence of this episode fully validates the decision to extend to a second season.

Anne Lister (Suranne Jones), so joyful that she shares the moment with the viewer.

Despite the potential for the episodes of Gentleman Jack to bleed into one another, writer-director Sally Wainwright has done a fine job of giving each episode an individual identity. The finale is structured around moving apart and coming together, as Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) goes on her long-planned trip around Europe with her two long-suffering servants for company, while Ann Walker (Sophie Rundle), having slit her wrists at the end of the previous episode,Women's Sandals with A Rivet Female High Heel Women's shoes Open Toe Slip Breathable Lining Comfortable Women's High Heel Sandals,Apricot,35Women Summer Casual Mesh Sneakers Fashionable Breathable Running shoes,White,39CBDGD High-Heeled shoes Women's Fashion Casual Elegant Temperament Buckle High Heels High-Heeled shoes Spring and Summer 10.5CM 4 colors High HeelsNDJFN Summer shoes Men Breathable Beach Slippers Upstream shoes Adult Woman Swimming Sandals Diving Socks withdraws further into herself at her sister’s house in Scotland. Separated by effectively realised stormy seas and unreliable communications, the bringing of the two back together over the hour provides the necessary tension and drama.

For Ann, the situation is revealed to be dire as her sister Elizabeth (Katherine Kelly) turns out not to be the villain at all, supportive of Ann and desperate to see her happy. Rather, it is her husband (Derek Riddell), who destroys the letter with Anne’s postal address in Denmark as he schemes to have Ann married off to an associate. The episode develops a deep bond between the sisters as Elizabeth finally betrays her husband, explains the situation to Ann, and writes to her relatives the Priestleys (Peter Davison and Amelia Bullmore) to come and pick her up. There’s a mid-episode triumph here, first as Ann stands up for herself and tells Captain Sutherland that they are leaving, Sandals, clip toe pastoral sandals shiny special flat feet rhinestone large size women's shoes ( color White , Size 5.5 B(M)US )goldsmyth Transparency Heel shoes Woman Summer Casual Basic Party shoes Woman Peep Toe Low Heel Slippersand then as the Priestleys, weak-willed and prejudiced as they are, stick up for her. It’s a turning point for Ann as she takes back control of her own destiny.

Anne, meanwhile, arrives in Copenhagen, having escorted a young woman (Stephanie Hyam) back home. It’s a pleasure to see Anne on her travels: she wears a dress for the second time in two episodes as she is dined by Copenhagen’s great-and-good,GIY Women's Square Toe Plaid Ankle Boots Fashion Glitter Mid Heel Zipper Chelsea Dress Short BootiesQmfur Women's Fashion Short Snow Boot Short Shearling Ankle Boot Ankle Booties and then is introduced to the Queen (Sofie Gråbøl). The magical Queen sees through Anne’s black dress immediately and tells her to move past her broken heart, and indeed Anne does tear up the carpet at a ball with Hyam’s Miss Ferrall (and Wainwright’s direction perfectly captures the speed at which Anne approaches life). But the journey is short-lived, Genuine Leather Men Sandalias shoes women Rome Rock Sandal shoes, US6-10 as the doctor sends word that her beloved aunt (Gemma Jones) has gangrene, and she needs to come home if she wants to be sure of seeing her.

The vulnerabilities of the Halifax situation combine to bring Anne low. There’s a lot of humour as she travels back, especially as her servants (Albane Courtois and Dino Fetscher) huddle in the rain, vomit in the street, and fall asleep in the coach while Anne takes over the drive. Anne grabs the doctor by the throat when she gets back, furious to find her aunt well, but it’s quickly obvious that this is out of fear – we see her processing what might have happened.Yellow Box Women's Rise Clear 9.5 M USAmerican Rag Ellie Round Toe Canvas Flats, PEWTER, Size 5.5 She is likewise furious when her father (Timothy West) tells her she is an idiot for mortgaging the deeds to the family home against her plan to sink a mine, and Anne’s demeanour when she goes to the site and sees the scale of the problems is heartbreaking. At this point, she seems to have lost everything.

So hurrah for Ann, returning to Halifax and immediately setting out to find Anne’s address, only to find Anne herself. Their reunion scene is moving, and beautifully performed, especially as Anne explains that she isn’t as strong as she seems (or that she is, just not all the time). The scene builds beautifully to their procession of love, Pretty-sexy-toys Autumn Plush Snow Boots Women Wedges Knee-High Slip-Resistant Boots Thermal Female Cotton-Padded shoes Warm Size Black with Fur,7.5and then we see the two going to York to take communion together, treating it as their own private wedding ceremony as their hands brush as they walk back down the aisle.

And the bickering of the two, with Ann proving herself to be more than an equal to her more senior wife, suggests the beginnings of a happy marriage. It’s a joyful way to finish an excellent serie.s

The Willow Globe in Powys, Wales, celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019, and the coincidence of the British Shakespeare Association holding its first conference in Wales led to a special performance of the company’s Pericles in the grounds of Oystermouth Castle. A more beautiful setting for an outdoor production of Pericles is hard to imagine; the high stone walls and steep grassy slope made for a perfect auditorium, with a sea view to boot. With a rough breeze circulating throughout, the stormy weather of the play has unusual, sensual presence.

The poster

Despite being performed on the Gower peninsula, a coincidence with the name of the play’s narrator noted in the programme, this is a surprisingly un-Welsh production. The strongest component is the band playing Simon Fraser’s music, which draws on Mediterranean influences and even includes an Arabic folk song for Marina (Caitlin Williams) to sing to the troubled Pericles (Nathan Goode). The music is beautifully doneBreathable hollow carved leather shoes Flat leather lace casual shoesAIWEIYi Womens Fashion Chunky High Heels Ankle Strap Platform Pump shoes Black,RHFDVGDS Summer fashion Sandals Leather shoes Rhinestone flat sandals with flat though the overwhelming whiteness of the cast means it feels somewhat appropriative, and it might have been lovely to see the company claim a Welsh identity for the play.

Sue Best and Ian Yeoman’s production boldly takes on the full text with no appreciable cuts. For the most part, the amateur company handles the text with confidence, especially Yeoman as an eloquent, commanding Cerimon, and Laurence Golding as an ebullient, avuncular Simonides.WANGFANG Sandals Leather White shoes, Spring and Summer Breathable Mesh Flat Casual shoes Lace-up Sneaker for Women (Size US6 EU37 UK4 MX3.5 CN37) But the emphasis is on an ensemble ethos, with the whole large ensemble assembling to speak the words of the choruses, Gower becoming a collective voice that occasionally breaks up into the characters being spoken about. The Chorus moves about the audience, allowing the narration to come from all sides.

The highlight is the long battle between the six knights, played out as a series of one-on-one duels in which Pericles bests each of the knights in turn and they comically run away or are knocked out, the last after trying to take on Pericles without weapons. The dance is then played as a secondary competition, with Pericles unsure of his footing as the six soldiers link arms and begin stepping in time; as he builds confidence and begins leading the dance, the other knights peel off in exhaustion until only one other is left. This surprisingly detailed moment showcases Pericles’ ability to adapt to his circumstances and prevail,AIWEIYi Womens Peep Toe Chunky High Heel Sandals Strappy Platform Dress Sandal PinkStudio Pollini Womens The Anna Mule Dress Sandal and the company’s sense of fun.

Some easy laughs are obtained from the appearance of three middle-aged prostitutes when the scene shifts to Mytilene, showing off their fishnets and broken teeth to the audience while the band plays a sultry jazz number. Erin Draper’s Lysimachus is a smooth operator, fully aware of the depravity of his own city, but not above going straight to Pericles with stories of virtue when it suits him. Here, when Lysimachus suddenly asks Pericles for Marina’s hand in marriage,GIY Women's Lace up Platform Sneakers Breathable Easy On Slip On Comfortable Casual Sport Walking shoes Marina looks momentarily surprised as her father – who she has never met – suddenly assumes right of approval over her love affairs.

The production struggles, ultimately, to establish emotional coherence. The lengthy reunifications of the last act are oddly paced, focusing more on delivering the lines than on the import of what these might mean; and the final act inadvertently undermines itself by having Thaisa seemingly instantly forget about Marina while greeting Helicanus. The production doesn’t linger on the troubling implications of Antiochus and his daughter,Women's Flat Sandals Leather Roman Strap Flat Sandals Comfort Daily Apartment Flat shoes Beach Sandals (color Apricot, Size 7.5 US) and while Maria Carreras does a nice job of making Dionyza a hissable villain, the reluctance to make cuts means that the more interesting character choices struggle to come through. The production makes a fine case for its venue, and to see Pericles done as a community-focused project is a rare thing indeed. It’s a play, though, that would have benefited from a stronger sense of purpose and ownership; deferring to the text without exploring its possibilities makes for a long evening.

The anthology Common People, edited by Kit de Waal, is an important collection of working-class writers, combining essays and memoirs with creative responses to the idea of being working-class. It’s a moving collection with a great deal to say back to a world – especially an arts/literary world that often fails to recognise the scale of its own socio-economic privilege – that too often seeks to represent the working classes, rather than allowing those from underprivileged backgrounds to speak for themselves.

I wanna live like…

Lynne Voyce’s short essay is a personal response to her childhood memories of growing up as the daughter of a Merseyside Vauxhall worker who was regularly on strike. Merseyside in the late seventies/early eighties was hit especially badly by Thatcher’s government,Women's Classic Pointed Toe High Heels Slip On Stiletto Pumps DressZandina Women's Thigh-high Boots Party Prom Over-Knee Booties Casual Winter High Heel BootsGIY Women's Dress Oxfords Loafers shoes Slip-On Round Toe Studded Bow Retro Mid Block Heel Classic Pumps and even down at the south end of the Wirral – where the industrial sprawl of Runcorn, Widnes and Ellesmere Port bump up against the mansions of footballers and investors – the Winter of Discontent left families literally with nothing to eat.

Voyce’s essay captures the child’s-eye view of strike culture, where parents would switch over the channel when a ‘connie’ like Bruce Forsyth came on, and where families gathered together in the streets. The most heartbreaking memory comes on a particular Christmas when young YuJi Women Gladiator Sandals Zipper Platform Block High Heels Cutout Peep Toe SandalsBe fearless Women shoes Mother Driving shoes Female Moccasins Women Flats Hand-Sewing shoesLynne asked her parents ‘is that all?’ when confronted with a paltry present selection; ‘I know my mother cried that morning’. The pressures of the child, not fully understanding the implications of poverty, become the burden of the parents, filled with shame and disappointment, knowing that they can’t provide what is ‘normal’.

And normality is, in many ways, what is at stake in this essay. Poverty is normal, but ‘normal’ is also what poverty prevents one from being. The gift of a package of meat from a neighbour becomes a rich, complex, beautifully evocative memory, AIWEIYi Womens Tassel Peep Toe Lace up Thick High Heels Strappy Sandals Blackin no small part because the act of eating a full meal has itself become abnormal. The kindnesses of strangers and the solidarity of workers sharing an experience are exceptional – yet of course, Lacitena Guangzhou Wholesale Women shoes with Diamonds It's an interesting, comfortable and casual productthe exceptional kindnesses are driven by an exceptional cruelty. It’s a potent reminder in a time when Brexiteers are talking about the benefits of a tightening-belt, war-time camaraderie – this nostalgia forgets the dire costs that necessitate such solidarity.

But importantly, the essay is itself no naive paeon to unions. As Voyce points out, ‘we didn’t think we were “sticking it to the bosses” … Rather, we felt poor, depressed, and manipulated by all sides’. In a world where strike votes were held by the workers going to Tranmere’s home ground, lining up in the terraces and sticking up their hands, the possibility for meaningful dissent was non-existent, and a worker such as Voyce’s father felt caught between the bosses and the unions.AIWEIYi Womens Solid Patent Leather Back Lace up Stretchy Low Heel Over The Knee Boots BlackThe conclusion to this account – in which Voyce’s dad leaves Vauxhall, goes on the dole, and takes on a new job as a night porter – is bittersweet, a partial victory in the escape from a no-win scenario, but also a reminder that there is only one winner in this kind of conflict.RHFDVGDS ladies chunky heels Martin boots Fashion ankle bootsNike SB Kids Mogan Mid 2 Jr 645996-010 White Black.

Voyce’s chapter is representative of the achievements of the volume as a whole, offering uneasy, complex and emotional responses to well-worn situations, and bringing an authenticity rooted in the personal to bear on the conversation. It’s a beautifully written essay, its conflicted memories and ambivalent emotional responses refusing an easy narrative.
