Female roles: Hamlet, Gertrude, Polonia, Horatia, Rosencrantz and Gildenstein (doubling with other roles such as the dumb players, Bernanda and Fransica)

Production Concept: The Bardic Tradition, from which the laws pertaining to the English Renaissance theater drew, had laws that lend themselves to a female Hamlet. First, to be a king, a man must marry the queen; thus Claudius must marry Gertrude to rule. Second, if a king has no heirs, then his sister’s eldest son is his heir. Therefore, if Polonia is Claudius’s sister, then Laertes is Claudius’s heir. A woman can be monarch if she can fight; otherwise her spouse rules. Laertes, as Claudius’s heir would expect to marry Hamlet. However, Hamlet can fight. She duels with Laertes and wins.
