Playhouse Creatures: Arena Theatre

"Award-winning Arena Theatre is back in Shaftesbury with their sauciest offering yet. On the restoration of the monarchy in 1660, Charles II permitted, for the first time, actresses to perform on the stage. These were the 'playhouse creatures' of the play's title.
The play brings these real historical characters back to life, mixing actual events with what they might have said backstage.
We see comedy and tragedy as the first female actors struggle for recognition and a new role for women, whilst often falling victim to the attitudes of the age."
