Playhouse Creatures

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  English actresses appear on stage - the first time female actors have been allowed to perform in public.

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.
