Playhouse Creatures at The Burbage Theatre

February 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Playhouse Creatures

by April De Angelis

directed by MJ Daly

February 1 through February 25

The year is 1669 a bawdy and troublesome time. Theaters 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.
