Product Description
Misericord carvings present a fascinating corpus of medieval art which, in turn, complements our knowledge of life and belief in the late middle ages. Subjects range from the sacred to the profane and from the fantastic to the everyday, seemingly giving equal weight to the scatological and the spiritual alike. Focusing specifically on England - though with cognisance of broader European contexts - this volume offers an analysis of misericords in relation to other cultural artefacts of the period. Through a series of themed "case studies", the book places misericords firmly within the doctrinal and devotional milieu in which they were created and sited, arguing that even the apparently coarse images to be found beneath choir stalls are intimately linked to the devotional life of the medieval English Church. The analysis is complemented by a gazetteer of the most notable instances.

Preview: Rapunzel, Citizens Theatre, Glasgow

When I meet Jessica Hardwick at Glasgow’s Citizens Theatre, I have to do a double take. I’ve known the acclaimed young actress for many years, having taught her and her student actor colleagues when she was an extremely promising undergraduate at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Today her trademark flowing, dark blonde locks are wrapped up in a tousled red wig. She is in the midst of rehearsals for the Gorbals playhouse’s Christmas show, Rapunzel, in which she plays the titular lead. As the wig suggests, the Citz’s festive audiences are not about to be given a sanitised or Disneyfied version of the centuries-old fairytale of the girl locked in the tower by a witch. “It’s the complete opposite of a girly Rapunzel”, Hardwick explains, with obvious pleasure. There’s something really tomboyish about it. My character is very quirky and feisty. The production is staged for the Citizens by experienced director Lu Kemp, using an adaptation by Annie Siddons which, in turn, is based on the famous version of the tale by the Brothers Grimm. Hardwick is delighted to be working with Siddons’s script. “I knew the Grimm Brothers’ version as a child”, she says. “Our play is based on that, so it’s quite dark in places. “There’s something really satisfying in having that dark element in the story”, she continues. “I remember as a child reading the Grimms’ Cinderella. It makes characters more interesting when there’s a bit of danger in there. In fact, Hardwick’s enthusiasm for the show, which is delightfully abundant, extends to every aspect of the production. The original music, which is played live on stage, is “cool”, she says. “It’s kind of folk-rocky, and it’s got a grungy aspect to it. ”. The set, costume and puppet designs are great, too, she tells me. “It’s a typical Citz show. The set is very bare to start off with, then everything starts to grow and feed into it. ”. The flourishing of a garden around young Rapunzel could be a metaphor for Hardwick’s career in recent years. She was the richly deserved recipient of a 2014 Billy Award, given to young actors by playwright and painter John Byrne in memory of the late Billy McColl. That accolade came shortly after her superb performance as Sonya in Citizens director Dominic Hill’s unforgettable production of Crime And Punishment. Other roles include Mathilde, the long-suffering, young wife of the poet Paul Verlaine, in Pamela Carter’s play Slope, and Rima, beloved of the eponymous. Source: Scottish Stage
