"Mister Spigott, you are auditioning, are you not, for the part of Tarzan", goes the line from a famous sketch by Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, where a one-legged person is applying for the role:



In those times, it was considered comical. Fast-forward half a century, and Nottingham Playhouse produces a version of the Madness of George III, where the part of Charles FitzRoy is played by a woman without an arm (left corner, red coat):



The character behind her, in green coat, is doctor Richard Warren, by the way; also played by a female actor.

On the other hand, theater has always been like that, when first all female parts used to be played by men, and then the tables turned somewhat.
