Orange was the new black for London's all-female Henry IV

It's true that Shakespeare's plays bent gender over backwards by requiring female roles to be played by male actors, but a new version of Henry IV, staged at the Donmar Warehouse in London, took the practice even father by presenting an all-female cast set in a women's prison. (photo)

Directed by Phyllida Lloyd, the play closed November 29, 2014. In his review, Matt Wolf of the New York Times says, "Several of the actresses from (Lloyd's earlier all-female Julius) 'Caesar' are on board for this latest venture, female prison inmates acting Shakespeare’s play as a way of, well, acting out."
