BOX OFFICE OPENS SOON!

The year is 1669 – a bawdy and troublesome time. The theatre have just re-opened after 17 years of suppression under the Puritans, encouraging a great upsurge in dramatic writing. Of vital importance to the development of drama was the entrance of the first English 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 the time. A moving and often comic account of the true lives of Restoration actresses, with some earthy language!
