I think we can all admit that some of William Shakespeare’s plays were not exactly pro-feminist to today’s standards. Lavinia takes a number of Shakespeare’s women who had a bad run in with a man, and gathers them in a support group, to continue their unfinished narratives. One of Lavinia’s best friends, Sylvia, was just attacked by her own close friend, Proteus, but when all is said and done, there were no consequences to Proteus’ actions. Lavinia makes it her personal mission to bring Proteus to justice. It’s a Jian Ghomeshi story for Elizabethan times, made modern.
