London, 1660s. This lovely comedy takes place during one wild night in the life of Aphra Behn - poet, spy and soon to be England's first professional playwright. But with the interruptions from King Charles II and Nell Gwyn, will Aphra finish her play by morning?

Part of our FIRST BITE SERIES - five evenings of rehearsed readings of new plays. See actors perform "script in hand" readings of new plays which might one day become full productions.
