Show Summary Details


This article focuses on five actresses now stretching their Middletonian wings: two from Still's Revenger, one from Berger's, one from Elliot's Women Beware, and a fifth from an earlier promenade production of The Changeling, directed by Joanna Reed. Anyone interested in Middleton's art and Middleton's women can learn a lot from Barbara Flynn, Katherine Manners, Liv Rooth, Harriet Walter, and Louise Yates: five actresses, at very different stages in their careers, playing five very different roles in four very different productions on three very different stages.
