"Seems to me I've been this way before....." (Dylan)

One being happenstance and two being coincidence and therefore to save a
third being enemy action....you've missed the joke.

But in the case of .1156; nor did teenage (or any other age) girls play
Othello, Macbeth, or Harry V...but that's not the point.

See me for an extra tutorial.

No, they were all played by boys. The idea that they might be played by
girls on the public stage never entered into anyone's head. Hence the
decision to cast boys in the roles was a gendered, and not a genderless one.
