Angelique Archer on portraying "Macbeth" as a female actor: I don't think that having a woman play Macbeth is weird. I think it brings out the themes of toxic masculinity in Macbeth even more. In our production we chose to switch the pronouns of Macbeth to she/her/hers but to keep all mentions of the words “King” and “Man” because we understood that the play and the character of Macbeth are so tied to this tenet of toxic masculinity. I believe that having a woman play Macbeth allows us to show the audience how damaging these ideas of masculinity are because lines like "I dare do all that may become a man who dares do more is none" and "If trembling I inhabit then, protest me the baby of a girl" hits our ears differently when spoken by a woman. Having a woman play Macbeth I believe draws focus to the fact that these ideas of masculinity we have aren’t natural, that no man is like this, as we see a female Macbeth constantly put on this masculine façade in order to be successful in her society. More than that, having a woman as Macbeth allows us to show how toxic masculinity is not just harmful to men but harmful to women—and perhaps all of Scotland—as well."
