Production Description

Casting an Off the Wall production, a neo-Restoration comedy that takes place during one night in the life of Aphra Behn (1640-1689), poet, spy, first professional female playwright, and one of the most influential dramatists of the late 17th century. Synopsis: Sprung from debtors’ prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production at one of only two London companies, if she can only finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne, complicated royal love, King Charles II, and a very dodgy ex-love, double-agent William Scot, who may be in on a plot to murder the king in the morning.
