    Yesssss.

  2. I just saw a production of twelth night and there was a whole lot of flirting and touching between viola and orsino way before viola's revealed as a girl and Bi orsino is 100% a thing i can get behind

    Yes, very good, very good.

  3. Hello yes I would like to point out that puck is hella genderqueer and hella pansexual also this tumblr is exceedingly suited to my interests

    You are extremely correct and also that reminds me that I need to put up some stuff from the excessively queer production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream I saw recently, I will do that when I get home from my current vacation.

  5. Ophelia/Hamlet/Horatio with ace Ophelia and transboy Hamlet. Just gonna leave this here.

    I like you.

  6. How about a polyamorous relationship between Rosencratz, Guildenstern, and Hamlet? (Actually, a poly relationship between any of the younger characters from Hamlet works.)

    I myself am particularly partial to Hamlet/Ophelia/Horatio, but YES GOOD ALL THE POLY RELATIONSHIPS.

  7. Is all really fair in love? Young Proteus only has eyes for his hometown sweetheart, Julia. But on a trip to Milan, he gets one look at the lovely Silvia… and dumps Julia in a heartbeat. Two problems: Silvia is his best friend’s girl, and Julia won’t be dumped that easily. Stir in some bandits, an outraged father and a bad-mannered dog, and it’s friend versus friend in a wild tale of romantic rivals. This sumptuous production of Shakespeare’s early comedy—with twists that echo in his later plays—honors and mirrors Elizabethan tradition with an all-female cast.

  8. Dear Disturbed Diary: a Modern, Genderswapped Hamlet

    Submitted by —thank you!

    Hi, my name is Putu Mark, and I have an obsession with Shakespeare and way too much free time. That’s why I’ve decided to take my all time favorite play of his, “Hamlet”, and modernize it. Briefly - before I begin publishing the actual story - I’d like to go over a summary of the story and then an explanation of it. And since brevity is the soul of wit, I shall be brief, so here goes!

    Summary: Facing a lack of closure over her mother’s death three-years previously, Amy drags her best friend Tori along on a quest to seek closure with her estranged family. Little do they know that everything has changed - and not for the better. It might just be Amy’s imagination, but her aunt and father just seem a little bit too close… It’s up to Amy and Tori to find the truth about Amy’s mother’s death before it’s too late… Told from the perspective of different characters and their blogs, diaries, journals, and notes.

  9. Not sure if you're aware, but Oregon Shakespeare did 2 Gentlemen of Verona with an all female cast. They kept the original pronouns, but it was easy to watch as a lesbian or non-binary romance. And I have the hugest crush on this Valentine. That is all. :D (Seriously this Valentine. She was gorgeous and amazing and akdmdkamfndkakzgn)

    I was not aware. That’s awesome! Do you have pictures or links from the performance? I’d love to feature them!

  10. I haven't seen much from you guys lately. What happened? (Please keep posting, I adore this blog!)
