Proscenium Presents: Playhouse Creatures – January 14-17th, 2015.

theatre_masksProscenium Presents: Playhouse Creatures by April de Angelis

The year is 1669 – a bawdy and troublesome time. Theatres 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.

Playhouse Creatures runs at the Compass Theatre, Ickenham, from 14th to 17th January at 7:45pm.

Tickets are £12.

Visit the Compass website to book tickets, or call 01895 673200.

We look forward to welcoming you in January.
