Abstract:

The Winter of Discontent is what the Sun called the winter of 1978-1979, when monstrous strikes paralyzed months in Great Britain. "Here comes the winter of our discontent", it is also the first line that Richard III pronounces in the eponymous play by Shakespeare. Richard III is the story of a conquest, that of power. And this character, that winter, the young Candice will play it, in an exclusively feminine staging. Between two bike tours to deliver recommended mail in an increasingly messy London, she will seek to understand who Richard III is. At the Warehouse Theater, during a rehearsal, she will meet a still unknown Margaret Thatcher, who has come to take a diction class, and who is already determined to become the head of the country. In The Winter of Discontent, Thomas B. Reverdy stages the end of an era as he tells us of the birth of a new world. A world where the economy becomes wild and politics cynical, a world where Just do it will soon be used only to sell shoes. In short, a world that has become ours and whose archaeological findings are the foundations and foundations.--Babelio.
