In Shakespeare's time, boy actors played female roles. The "assigning of women's part to boy actors gave Shakespeare a rich opportunity to sport dramatically with sexual ambiguity and to interrogate gender differences” (Bevington, Shakespeare's Ideas 39). Twelfth Night demonstrates this redoubling of gender, which becomes a theme in the play. Discuss gender roles in this play.
