Jason King Jones talks about why Shakespeare's performances back in the day featured a lack of female actors, and why it took until almost 50 years after his death for women to first appear on the English stage.

Learn more about the legendary playwright, his performances and more on Shakespearean Insights, produced in partnership with the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

Jason King Jones is the host of Shakespearean Insights on WDIY. He is the Artistic Director of the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.
