New Visions Directing Festival - Or, by Liz Duffy Adams, directed by Kristin J Heckler

Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 3:00 pm

The Theater at the School of Drama 151 Bank Street, New York, NY 10014

The New School College of Performing Arts - School of Drama presents Or, by Liz Duffy Adams, directed by Kristin J Heckler.

Aphra Behn: poet, spy, and soon to be the first professional female playwright. Sprung from debtors' prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production, 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 Scott – who may be in on a plot to murder the king. Can Aphra resist Nell's charms, save Charles' life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night?

This production is part of New Visions Directing Festival, which features three plays that highlight the work of this year’s graduating MFA directors and actors. Performances run November 3-7; November 17-21; and December 8-12. For more information and a complete schedule, visit School of Drama.
