Sorry to interrupt the readthrough! I recently saw an all-female Shakespeare production and it struck me that all the parts Lawrie longs for are the male parts. The ones she will never get another chance at after the gender-freedom of a girls' school. In fact Tim (?)points this out re Caliban. - "'she won't [get another chance], you know. It's a man's part'. This was incontrovertible..." I bet Hotspur would have suited her, too. Poor Lawrie!
