Compilation: Emma Rice and Gendered Casting at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre

The Globe’s Emma Rice: ‘If anybody bended gender it was Shakespeare’ By Mark Brown for The Guardian, 5 January 2016 The fact that just 16% of Shakespeare’s characters are women – and that most of the memorable lines are spoken by men – will not stop Emma Rice’s mission to get a gender-balanced stage at Shakespeare’s Globe. “There is no reason why Gloucester can’t […]
