To She or Not to She

“Frailty thy name is woman?! Oh get stuffed Will!”

Armed with The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, some rudimentary feminism and a lot of questions, Emma is here to find out exactly why she can’t play Hamlet. Or Macbeth. Or Iago. Or even just a downright Fool. And not just on stage but in real life!

In this semi-autobiographical show, Emma Bentley dons the trousers as she tackles the trials and tribulations of playing Shakespeare’s men… without a codpiece.

 

“Bentley’s magnetic presence… makes for a warm and sparklingly funny performance” THE SCOTSMAN

“Some moments reveal the work of comedic genius, easily digestible and perfect in timing, whilst others conjure up a deep sense of injustice” A YOUNGER THEATRE
