Yes. I saw "Cressida". A beautifully acted production as well as a
very interesting script. Another plot element that is perhaps relevant
to this discussion was the depression of one of the boys as he moved
from the major female roles to very minor male ones as he moved from a
boy actor of female parts to a young adult male actor, losing the
attention and devotion reserved for the boy leads.
The script has been published, so anybody who missed it, but would be
interested to see the script can get hold of it.
