Propeller all-male double-bill of Shakespeare

SHAKESPEARE: THE TAMING OF THE SHREW/TWELFTH NIGHT
Director Edward Hall, whose all-male Propeller company is staging a double bill at the Old Vic, talks to Heather Neill about the plays, the ensemble, single-sex casting and the survival of the Watermill Theatre.
Having an all-male cast makes the pretence at the heart of theatre more obvious – and can allow you to listen to the story a bit more.
