Description

BA Acting presents Playhouse Creatures

by April De Angelis


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, Mary Betterton and Elizabeth Barry) to provide a moving and often comic account of the precarious lives of Restoration actresses.

With delicious absurd extracts from the heroic repertory and frantic dressing room scenes, the prevailing tone is comic but you are not allowed to forget the gutter waiting to reclaim these glittering figures.

Both The Libertine & Playhouse Creatures are presented by New CLan Arts in Repertoire, providing a chance to look at specific events in history from different social, political and gender perspectives.

This production contains material of an adult nature, 14+ only

This student production is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, LTD.
