’PLAYHOUSE CREATURES’ (Bruiser Theatre Company)

’PLAYHOUSE CREATURES’ (Bruiser Theatre Company)

Bruiser’s production is bawdy and brilliant. Expect fizzing comedy, camaraderie and contention in this unvarnished, wickedly funny and vivacious account of the fight these women faced to be seen as the theatre’s first legitimate actresses.

The year is 1669; and Charles II reigns over a politically charged country. Intelligent and cultured, his dedication to people and pleasure led to his controversial decree that finally gave women the chance to take the stage by storm. Enter the ‘Playhouse Creatures’.

Playhouse Creatures throws four actresses (Nell Gwyn, Elizabeth Farley, Rebecca Marshall and Mary Betterton) and Doll Common (a character in The Alchemist written in the early 1600s by Ben Johnson) into a moving and riotous account of the precarious lives of Restoration women, whilst falling victim to the attitudes and consequences of the age.

This play contains strong language, fleeting nudity and a distressing scene.
