Women playing Kings.

Mikaela Davies has written a strong case for women playing more roles in the Shakespearean canon over at Intermission. And she, along with some other great actors, are living it right now at the Stratford Festival. This is an idea that is near to my heart, having just completed a workshop for Bard on the Beach with an all female cast, using POW camp theatre as jumping off point, I hope to explore this idea further.  Our greatest actors are women – they should be getting the greatest parts.
