Ay, my lord.

Rosencrantz speaks for the both of them. Given the article I read this morning about gender and speech, it makes me think that Rosencrantz is a man and Guildenstern, a woman. It’s never played that way. I’ve seen female Rosencrantz and Guildensterns and male Rosencrantz and Guildensterns but never one of each. Probably this is due to people liking to make the joke about confusing them. And it might, indeed, make dramatic sense for them to be more alike than different. But I am very interested in their differences.
