Playhouse Creatures

The author, a British dramatist, is a modern researcher of the Elizabethan period. She describes the fate of five women in 17th century England, real life characters who were the first females to be allowed to perform on a stage in accordance with the law of that time (previously this privilege was accessible only to men). This play shows the sacrifices and renunciations that the women had to withstand in order to gain even the least considerable stage success. Although it was written many years ago, the play tackles issues which all of us may encounter in our everyday lives. Every actor in this play plays the lead part; it is an event which does not happen very often in today’s theater.
