About The Masks of Aphra Behn

It's 1677 and an audience getting ready to watch Aphra Behn's The Rover are in for a surprise. For the show has been cancelled and in its place Aphra herself recounts the extraordinary tale of her time as a spy for King Charles II in the Dutch Wars, and how she became the first professional female writer. Complete with excerpts from Behn's letters, poetry and plays, this vivid and thought-provoking one-woman show brings one of theatre's most brilliant raconteurs back to life. First performed in the Women and War Festival at the So & So Arts Club 2016. It then toured the UK in 2017, and streamed in the Off Online Fringe Festival 2020.
