This “playful, funny and inventive comedy” (NY Times) offers a fictional peek into the true story of Aphra Behn, Restoration Era spy and pioneering female playwright. Sprung from prison under the secret patronage of King Charles II, Aphra longs to be a giant of the London stage. When opportunity knocks in the form of an eccentric producer, Aphra has just one night to complete her masterpiece, juggle would-be lovers and ex-lovers, and avert a royal assassination before daybreak. Don’t miss this “hilarious history lesson” (SFGate) about a woman centuries ahead of her time.
