Casting women in men’s roles may seem like a radical innovation of our times, but playing with gender was an exciting feature of early modern theatre practice across Europe. Professor Clare McManus and Professor Lucy Munro help us to discover the history of gendered performance on the Renaissance stage.
Our research workshops give you a chance to be part of the Globe’s exploration of early modern and contemporary performance culture.
Using extracts featuring enraged women from The Noble Spanish Soldier by Thomas Dekker, Wit Without Money by John Fletcher and The Renegado by Philip Massinger, Globe actors and leading academics will uncover and question the practices of the Shakespearean stage.
