“Having had 400 years to think, Shakespeare has come to the conclusion that his work is full of problems. With the help of his younger self he deals with his trickiest problem to date… the women.” --description from Fringe Programme
BroadwayBaby review (3 stars): "an interesting piece of speculative theatre that is fresh enough to help us think about women in Shakespeare’s plays in a new light." http://broadwaybaby.com/shows/the-female-question/713828
Edinburgh Spotlight review (3 stars): "positive in its engagement of students with examining Shakespeare’s works and female characters. It is a play directed with some fine attention to movement and comedy, and it is performed with dedication and energy." http://www.edinburghspotlight.com/2016/08/fringe-review-the-female-question
The Scotsman review (2 stars): "In The Female Question, a Hull University groupportray a young Shakespeare convinced he can’t write women, and setting out to interview his own female characters on why this is; he’s also a bit like a doctor, behind his desk, but the acting and the lines don’t gel."
