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