Typical review – Richard Blackwood is mesmerising
Available onlineThis superb play draws on the final hours of Christopher Alder, who died in police custody in Hull in 1998 Christopher Alder’s last moments, in April 1998, were unforgivably brutal. Injured in a fight at a nightclub, he took his final breath in police custody. It was an abject death: an unlawful killing that, for his campaigners, represented another instance of a black British man dying in a senseless way.Yet what is marked about Ryan Calais Cameron’s astounding play, written in rap-like rhyming verse and tracing the minutiae of its unnamed character’s final day, is that it bursts with life, zest, humour and hedonism even as it hurtles towards tragedy.

Footballers feigning injury, referees in the action and Clay v Liston | Classic YouTube
This week’s roundup also features Sarah Taylor’s wicket-keeping skills and the pain of being an NHL official1) It’s not often the Guatemalan third division features in this roundup, but it’s also not often a player – in this case Rosbin Ramos of Batanecos – drops to the ground writhing in agony, pretending to have been hit by an object thrown from the crowd. Ramos is not the first: who could forget Dida’s slight overreaction to an admittedly stupid pitch invader at Celtic Park? Or Feyenoord’s Steven Berghuis? Or even this? Worse still is the tale of Roberto Rojas. Back in 1989, Chile needed to beat Brazil to qualify for the World Cup and were trailing 1-0 when keeper Rojas pretended to have been hit by a flare, cutting himself with a razor blade hidden in his glove. The game was abandoned and Rojas banned for life (a sanction lifted in 1991) while Chile, whose manager and doctor were in on the sting, were excluded from the 1994 tournament.2) Some referees are frustrated players, just like the rest of us. Here’s Óscar Macías blocking a goalbound shot from Cruz Azul, in their Liga MX game against Toluca. And here’s Maurice Paarhuis, refereeing a game in the Dutch fourth division, accidentally scoring for HSV Hoek against Harkemase Boys. And here’s Atay Daudov bagging for Manas against Keyes DD in the second round of the LFL Dagestan. Of course, no such digest is complete without our very own Mike Dean, so here’s Sky Sports’ homage.

WandaVison Season 2 Not Likely, Says Marvel Boss Kevin Feige
Marvel boss Kevin Feige has spoken out about the future of WandaVision, as the hit Disney+ series nears its end.After debuting last month, WandaVision has proved hugely popular on the streaming service, both with long-time Marvel fans and those less familiar with the franchise’s cinematic universe.Its popularity has left many questioning whether a second series could be on the cards when the show’s initial nine-episode run comes to an end, but in a new interview, Kevin Feige cast doubt on WandaVision’s return.He said (via E! News): “I’ve been at Marvel too long to say a definite no or a definite yes to anything in regards to… another season of WandaVision.”Kevin explained that there were other shows in the works at Marvel that would lend themselves more to multiple seasons than WandaVision.“How do I put this?” he began, cryptically. “Some of the shows that we are about to start filming, we are keeping in mind a structure that would lead into a season two and a season three in a more direct way than, say, a show like WandaVision, which clearly goes into a feature.”The “feature” in question is the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel Multiverse Of Madness, with Kevin confirming Elizabeth Olsen is to reprise her role as Wanda Maximoff.WandaVision has led to huge praise for its lead stars Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, as well as supporting cast members like Kathryn Hann, Teyonah Parris and Kat Dennings.The show is also responsible for 2021’s biggest earworm since RuPaul’s Drag Race’s UK Hun, after last week’s episode featured the impromptu musical number Agatha All Along.HuffPost may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page.
