A Midsummer Night's Dream
Although Puck is usually played by a male actor, it's worth noting that nowhere in the play is the audience told the character's gender, and there are no gendered pronouns used to reference Puck. Even the character's alternate name, Robin Goodfellow, is androgynous. It is interesting to consider that Puck is regularly thought to be a male character based solely on actions and attitudes during the play. It is also worth pondering how the play's dynamic would change if Puck was cast as a female fairy. Puck is also not the most mindful of fairies.
