The Austin Premiere Production

In 1663, Charles II reopens the England theatre playhouses and, for the first
time, women are able to take the stage. Considered little more than whores,
this is the story of these first actresses, the ‘playhouse creatures’, whose
ambitions, talent, and risk for artistic equally make their lives truly uncertain.
With high-spirited comedy, theatrical flair, and emotional poignancy, April De
Angelis’ moving tale is a bold moment signaling a new chapter of history
and, ultimately, is a story of the transforming power of theatre.

With Lori Cordova, Dashantanaya Lee, Jesselyn Parks
Darren Sharf, Michael Rodriguez, Hannah Enright
Valencia Lee, and Paige Breese.
