Or, by Liz Duffy Adams presented by Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble
For its first production of the Season of Mistaken Identity, SATE will produce Liz Duffy Adams' play Or,. Or, takes place (mostly) during one night in the life of Aphra Behn: poet, spy, and soon to be first professional female playwright. Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production at one of only two London companies, if she can only finish her play by morning despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double-agent William Scottwho may be in on a plot to murder the king in the morning. Can Aphra save Charles' life, win William a pardon, resist Nell's charms, and launch her career, all in one night?
SATE's performing ensemble includes Nicole Angeli as Nell Gwynne, John Wolbers as King Charles II, and Rachel Tibbetts as Aphra Behn. Or, is directed by Ellie Schwetye. The assistant director is Karen Pierce and the stage manager is Alex Glow. Lighting and set design by Bess Moynihan.
