Aphra Behn, former British spy, will have fame and glory as England’s first female playwright if she can just finish her play by sunrise. But between her handsome patron King Charles II, free-spirited actress Nell Gwynne, and double agent William Scot – who may or may not be trying to murder the king – how can she possibly concentrate? Free love, politics and historical fiction abound in this door-slamming Restoration farce, that tells the true(ish) story of a night in the life of the literal first lady of the stage.

CONTENT ADVISORY: contains sexual content, adult situations and strong language. Recommended for audiences 18+.
