Stage and screen star Hayley Atwell is currently playing two lead roles a night in Measure for Measure at the Donmar Warehouse. She tells Nick Clark about how the production responded to contemporary gender politics, reveals the Shakespeare villain she’s longing to play and explains why pranking her co-stars keeps her performances fresh

Sitting in the offices of the Donmar Warehouse, where she is starring in Measure for Measure, Hayley Atwell starts talking, tentatively at first, about her plans. She pauses and rocks back in her chair. “Okay”, she smiles. “I guess we can put this out in the world…”

A look at Atwell’s career shows a restlessness and desire not to make the obvious choices. And, after working on a TV drama last year where everything changed for her, she has been thinking long and hard about doing something a bit different. “It occurs to me that I’ve been thinking about creating my own work, or directing something or producing something,” she says. “I would like to start my own production company.”

The idea is not yet fully formed – she jokes about the name: “Pig About Town. No, Kid About Town. Something lighthearted” – but she is serious about looking for projects, whether on film, television or in theatre, and not just to act in. She also reveals she has been writing. What has emerged over the course of our conversation is someone who thinks about the roles she chooses and the issues surrounding them. This is no different.

“I want original material, or to adapt books, with strong nuanced narratives of all different types of genre, collaborating with like-minded people. I think I have the experience and the skillset to know my own mind and trust what I can do, but I also want to collaborate with people.” She stops and laughs: “It feels as though I’m auditioning for you.”

Rehearsal pictures for Measure for Measure starring Hayley Atwell and Jack Lowden have been released.

Measure for Measure opens at the Donmar Warehouse on October 11, where Atwell and Lowden will be rotating the roles of the powerful Deputy and powerless Novice within each performance of the play.

Artistic director Josie Rourke directs Shakespeare’s play, which is imagined both in the year it was written and in 2018.

Set in a corrupt Vienna, the Duke hands control to his Deputy, an orthodox puritan reformer, who uses an ancient law to try citizens for sexual misconduct and enact the death sentence. When a religious Novice pleads for mercy, the Deputy falls guilty of the very crime condemned by the law.

“They will alternate roles on the same night,” Rourke told the Standard. “What the audience will see is scenes replayed with the gender shifted and therefore the power dynamic shifted.

“One of the ideas behind the production Is measuring our own standards against what happens when a man says something to when a woman says the same thing.”

Ben Allen, Rachel Denning, Jackie Clune, Molly Harris, Raar Rawi, Helena Wilson, Adam McNamara, Nicholas Burns, Sule Rimi, Matt Bardock and Anwar Russell complete the cast.

September 26th, 2018   Author: admin   The Long Song

Hayley Atwell and Sir Lenny Henry will star in a TV adaptation of Andrea Levy’s bestselling novel The Long Song, the BBC has announced.

The three-part series will also star Tamara Lawrance and Jack Lowden.

Set during the final days of slavery in 19th-century Jamaica, the story follows the strong-willed young slave July, played by Lawrance.

Atwell plays the odious plantation owner Caroline Mortimer, while Lowden appears as Robert Goodwin, the charming new overseer who is determined to improve the plantation for the slaves and mistress alike.

Henry will play Godfrey in the BBC One series, which has been adapted by Sarah Williams from Levy’s book, and will be directed by Mahalia Belo.

The Long Song was shortlisted for the 2010 Man Booker prize and was the recipient of the 2011 Walter Scott prize.

Lawrance, who previously appeared in King Charles III and Undercover, said of her character July: “She relishes mutiny with wit and courage; finding ways to win in spite of her circumstances. She also rings true to Jamaica’s national heroes – Nanny, Paul Bogle and Sam Sharpe – who, by standing up for their own humanity, shifted world history.

“I believe stories like these illuminate the legacy of slavery in relation to where we are today. It’s all still relevant!”

Also joining the cast are the EastEnders actor Dona Croll, The Boy With the Topknot star Sharon Duncan-Brewster and Ayesha Antoine. [Source]
