â€œIâ€™ve directed much of the Shakespeare canon so digging into this new text for the year has been thrilling. The female characters of Violante and Leonora have a depth of wisdom and intelligence about the dreadful double standards young women face that rings too clearly now.â€ -- shares director Andrew Borthwick-Leslie -- â€To work carefully and intensely with this terrific ensemble over such a long period has been rewarding but also disturbing about how little our understanding of gender roles and the influence of class has really changed.â€
