Compleat Female Stage Beauty by Jeffrey Hatcher

May 18 - June 2, 2012

In the flamboyant reign of King Charles II, London’s most renowned leading lady is a man named Edward Kynaston. But when royal decree puts women onstage and Kynaston finds his role reversed, he must learn to adapt to the times. Can England’s first actress help him become the man he never was? The battle of the sexes takes to the stage in this regional premiere by acclaimed local playwright Jeffrey Hatcher.
