Subject:        Doubled Roles

Members of the List know that I have speculated recently about roles
that were deliberately crafted to be played by the same actor.  Some
obvious examples (apart from the too-obvious Antipholi and Dromios) are
Theseus-Oberon and Hippolyta-Titania; Cordelia-Fool; and
Mamillius-Perdita.

The recent thread about Cymbeline has led me to muse that
Posthumus-Cloten also makes a good fit.  Any thoughts?
