PLAYHOUSE CREATURES by April de Angelis
London, 1669: King Charles II is on the throne, the theatres have reopened and puritanism long forgotten. For the first time, women are permitted to act on a stage. Playhouse Creatures follow the fortunes of Nell Gwynn and three other aspiring actresses as they fight for recognition and equality in a man’s world. With comedy, pathos and strong language, Playhouse Creatures shines a light on the real-life female pioneers of theatre in England.
