50/50 SHAKESPEARE PROJECT
Creating gender equity in the workplace of Shakespeare’s plays.
Shakespeare’s plays are constructed for a 450 year-old business model.
This business model is outdated, inequitable, and in other industries is now considered unacceptable, if not illegal.
Who we are
HOw we do it
Responsibly adjusting the gender identification of certain characters.
Reallocating text and action of characters to achieve gender equity throughout the plays.
Rebalancing the power dynamic imbedded in the text and structure of the plays that exists because of the business model of early modern English drama.
**The Shakespeare 50/50 Project does not claim to artistically improve Shakespeare’s plays.**
The Project aims to improve the workplace for Shakespeare practitioners.
