Vile lime towel idiot dance

To prophesy like the parrot

A strange and funny beast is prophecy. All the greats tell us this. And Shakespeare can’t let it well enough alone, like so many. 1,287 more words

Mouvement by Cymbeline 2016 Spring Bridal Collection

The collection was very much inspired by the French spirit, with an apparently austere elegance on the surface yet rich in refined details, a subtle balance between luxury fabrics such as Calais and Chantilly lace, silk, crepe, faille and Mikado silk. 109 more words

Mini review: Cymbeline at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse

The winter season at the SWP includes Shakespeare’s four late plays: Cymbeline, The Winter’s Tale, Pericles, and The Tempest. They’re all kind of bonkers and structurally unwieldy, which is why they rarely get performed. 439 more words

Shakespeare: Cymbeline

It’s not a play I know that well, never having studied it, and I’ve only read it a few times. It’s supposed to be set in ancient Britain, at the time of the emperor Augustus (which is a bit odd, since the Roman History I studied had no offical contact between Britain and Rome between Julius Caesar’s adventures in 55 and 54BC and Claudius’ conquest nearly a century later, but let’s not get too niggly..) but one thing that I have never really got is a sense of that time period; dialogue, action and attitudes basically feel like those of the sixteenth century, and the scenes in Rome and with Romans are very cursory. 411 more words

A month of theatre

January. Never my favourite month, so this year I took pre-emptive action. I used to go to the theatre regularly – in fact I used to be a theatre reviewer for my local paper, eons ago – but hadn’t been for ages. 489 more words
