Immediately following their RI premiere production of Aziza Barnes’s BLKS and the World Premiere of Aaron Blanck’s Hanukkah Schmanukkah, Burbage Theatre Co continues their 12th Season with Playhouse Creatures by April De Angelis, directed by MJ Daly. This marks Burbage’s second co-production with WomensWork Theatre Collaborative, following last year’s highly acclaimed production of The Oldest Profession by Paula Vogel. Playhouse Creatures will be presented for 13 performances from February 1 through February 25 at Burbage Theatre Co’s Wendy Overly Studio Theatre. 

 

PLAYHOUSE CREATURES

In partnership with WomensWork Theatre Collaborative

By April De Angelis

(February 1 - 25 )

"An immense talent and witty sensitive dialogue...Thoroughly entertaining." — Tribune

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

"Flesh and blood heroines...move and inspire...a few more female role models stamped firmly on your heart." — Time Out New York

"With delicious absurd extracts from the heroic repertory and frantic dressing room scenes, the prevailing tone is comic but you are not allowed to forget the gutter waiting to reclaim these glittering figures." — The Independent
