In 1899 Sarah Bernhardt decides she will play Hamlet – not the first time she has sought gender equality.

LOUIS: Someone needs to talk her out of it. She’s a great actress, but Hamlet? It’s grotesque.

If Shakespeare meant for Hamlet to be a woman, he would have named the play  “Hamlet Princess of Denmark”. That’s not what he wrote. . . Men playing women, that’s all right. Women playing men. It doesn’t work. . . . It’s a disgusting idea and you know it.
