Tala Gouveia, Ellie Piercy and Olivia Ross, in Blue Stockings

Theatre review: Blue Stockings, Shakespeare's Globe, London

Jessica Swale directed the first play by a woman ever to be staged at Shakespeare's Globe (Nell Leyshon's Bedlam in 2010). Now she returns to the venue with her own debut drama, Blue Stockings, a lively and eye-opening piece about the battle for equality in education. It's set in 1896 in Girton College, Cambridge, the first residential women's college in Britain. Here the girls studied the same degree courses as their male counterparts and matched them grade for grade, but they were denied the right to graduate, leaving them with little but the stigma of being a “blue stocking”, a female whose education marked her out as “unnatural” and hence unmarriageable.
