Compleat Female Stage Beauty presented by Theatre SC
Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher's historically based drama is set in England during the Restoration, at a time when only male actors were permitted on stage. Edward Kynaston, a glittering star famous for his portrayals of female characters, is at the height of his celebrity when King Charles II issues an edict allowing women to perform. Almost overnight, his domain of privilege is shattered, and he is forced to confront his own sense of self-worth as an actor and as a man.
