Playhouse Creatures

Written by: April de Angelis
Directed by: Lindsay Jones

Monday 1st - Saturday 6th June, 2020

The year is 1669 a bawdy and troublesome time. Theatres have just reopened after seventeen years of Puritan suppression. There is a surge in dramatic writing and the first English actresses appear on stage. Playhouse Creatures focuses on five of the most famous (Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Farley, Rebecca Marshall, Doll Common and Mary Betterton) to provide a moving and often comic account of the precarious lives of Restoration actresses.

Cast:

  • Nell Gwyn
