The Masks of Aphra Behn

Author(s): Claire Louise Amias
Company: A Monkey with Cymbals presents

Aphra Behn—spy, writer and female libertine—a one-woman show.

It's 1677 and an audience getting ready to watch Aphra Behn’s The Rover are in for a surprise. For the show has been cancelled and, in its place, Aphra herself recounts the extraordinary tale of her time as a spy for King Charles II in the Dutch Wars, and how she became the first professional female writer.

Complete with excerpts from Behn’s letters, poetry and plays, this one-woman show brings one of theatre's most brilliant raconteurs back to life.
