Playhouse Creatures by April De Angelis

Headgate Theatre Productions

The year is 1669 – a bawdy and troublesome time. Of vital importance to the development of drama is the appearance of the first actresses upon the English stage. April De Angelis has taken five famous figures – Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Farley, Rebecca Marshall, Doll Common and Mary Betterton – and given us a fascinating look at the precarious lot of actresses at that time. A moving and often comic account of the true lives of Restoration actresses.With some earthy language!

Tickets: £13, £12 (conc)
