By Aphra Behn
Directed by Jean Randich
Aphra Behn’s classic Restoration comedy tells the story of a band of raucous Englishmen and women in Naples during Carnival. Full of intrigue and pointed satire about the contradictions of sexual politics, this play, which premiered in 1677 by England’s first famous female playwright, feels right on time.
