"Or," A Neo-Restoration Comedy by Liz Duffy Adams

Event: 
Thu, 01/24/2013 - 8:00pm - 10:30pm

Meet Aphra Behn: poet, spy, and soon to be the world's first professional playwright. Sprung from debtors' prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a full production if only she can finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double agent William Scott - who is planning to murder the King in the morning. Against the backdrop of a long drawn out war and a counter-culture of free love, cross dressing, and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s look remarkably familiar in this touching and hilarious neo-Restoration comedy.
