WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Boys Will Be Girls is an irreverent examination of cross-dressing and sexual role-playing in Shakespeare. In an intimate 90-minute performance and commentary event, the actors and audience will examine how single-sex casting informs our understanding of the plays and how Shakespeare and his actors originally attempted to portray, understand, and invent what it means to be a woman. During the course of the evening, a man will play Lady Macbeth as she unsexes; a man will play a woman playing a man as Rosalind lets Orlando know what women want; and in a contemporary twist, members of The Queen's Company will offer highlights from their acclaimed all-women 2005 production of The Taming of the Shrew.
