About the show: 

The year in 1669, a bawdy and troublesome time. Theatres have just reopened after 17 years of Puritan suppression. There is a surge in dramatic writing and the first English actresses appear on stage. Playhouse Creatures focuses on 5 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.

The creative team of Playhouse Creatures seeks vivacious, dynamic and fabulous actors to join their production. From the team behind 2019’s ‘The Penelopiad’, this show is set to follow in its imaginative footsteps.
