Richard III: to make Shakespeare feminist, you need more than just a woman in the lead | Cassie Tongue:

“But maybe lip service to relevance is all Shakespeare can be these days….Doubling down on any additional urgent relevance here, without radically re-situating the production or adapting the text, seems like an attempt to dress this up as something it isn’t – something of genuine political importance.”

A really great read, and mirrors how I feel about how poorly this production was being marketed – especially the repeated mentioning of Trump and the current political climate, which consistently came off as a bit desperate and tenuous on Evans part. Perhaps Evans should have instead talked about the actor and character’s body, and what happens when you have a disability and people focus on it and treat you differently because of this etc.
