Comment: Re: SHK 17.0493 Seattle All-Female Hamlet
I, a girl, played a male, bloody, sword carrying Menteith - and scared
the crap out of a bunch of insolent, high school boys. Also, over the
years, I've found that casting young girls as old men works fairly well.
However, are we talking about the suspension needed to believe that
characters believe girls are guys? Or was that just a rant?
