It was an evening of experimentation as we had women actors read from popular male-centric plays. The discussion that followed afterwards was valuable and whole hearted as we engaged with the audience and the actors. What makes a good story? What makes a good character? Is there anything gained or lost from swapping in a female for a male role?
We all want to hear good stories about the human experience and that transcends any gender type.
