Blue Stockings

Shakespeare's Globe
7 October

So on they go against the tide, quick as a man
and sharp, longing to run ahead
but forced to creep, to keep their heads
below the parapet and hopes quiet.
They know that plants grown in the dark
may soon still flower and fruit;
and where a man may learn
why must a woman sit at home and wait?

Blue Stockings ran at Shakespeare's Globe, 24 August - 11 October
