If Gertrude, Hamlet's mom, were a real person, walking the streets of the 20th or 21st C., who would she be?
What about Ophelia?
What about Juliet?
Who would Kate the shrew be, tamed or untamed?
And would Beatrice of Much Ado About Nothing be fun or would she be someone you would cross the street to avoid?
And finally, a character who was once a real woman, Elizabeth Woodville, who appears in Richard III. She was a real queen of England, the grandmother of Henry VIII who made certain her daughter married to soon to be triumphant Henry Tudor in order to save her from Richard III.
What would they wear? What, to you, would they look like? What actresses would you cast as each?
