I am fully in agreement with Professor Hawks' views about USA beer, I wish I
could as fully agree with his critical views.

Have you thought of keeping the roles male even though the actors aren't?  I
played Antonio in an amateur production of Much Ado last year in a beard and
male costume and had a great time doing it.

Sounds like Othello's story of the singing beast in Antioch (2.2):
 
Three heads grew from the shouldersof the beast.
On one the hair was black as ebony,
The other crown was curled angel fair,
The third head wore a scarlet cap of wool,
That ended in a foolish bauble bright.
 
The heads are presumably Desdemona, Juliet, and Constance. I don't remember
anything scripted about having heads down one's front--though you do hear
funny things from the stage every once in awhile. The script is published by
Coach House Press, Toronto (1990).
