First Nighter: Harriet Walter's Prospero in Phyllida Lloyd's Blazing "The Tempest"

The formidable Harriet Walter, as directed by the equally formidable Phyllida Lloyd, is delivering the most astonishing reinterpretation of a famous William Shakespeare speech you might ever hope to witness. It's the poem that begins "Our revels now are ended," normally rendered as a magisterial pronouncement by the exiled and tyrannical Prospero in The Tempest. Not so magisterial this time. Walters, head resting on folded arms, recites the enchanting lines as a deeply emotional release, an ex...

Harriet Walter’s plea to artistic directors and gatekeepers to explore and pursue drama outside the established repertoire (Report, 17 November) is timely, as there is some positive news. Young women across the UK are forming companies and projects to tackle the cultural deficit, and the Donmar, Manchester Royal Exchange and Royal Court theatres ex...

London Theater Review: Phyllida Lloyd’s All-Female ‘The Tempest’

How far we’ve come. Phyllida Lloyd’s all-female Shakespeares were dismissed as “gimmicky” (and worse) four years ago. Today, genderblind casting is not the norm, but normalized: “King Lear,” “Henry V” and “Hamlet” have all been played by women. Change has hoisted the changemaker, though, and Lloyd’s trilogy, set in a women’s prison, is stuck with... Read more »

Absolutely Fabulous

Please forgive a little madness today... The day was done, gone the sun from the sea, from the hills, from the sky and there we were sitting at the kitchen table the same evening, missing the cat for all she was worth (that first night is always the worst, along with the following morning) when I had this bright idea that we should go and see the AbFab movie the next day. 'In fact, let's be really daring,' I said. 'and go to the cinema in the morning.' So I booked the seats online, two VIP ...
