Unit Set/Multiple Settings

"Luminaries of seventeenth-century England are resurrected and made to do the frug in OR, a playful, funny and inventive comedy…[Ms. Adams'] language has a natural period flavor and a formidable wit; her characters possess the spark of fully animated spirits; and she weaves into her story both biographical detail and cultural context with grace…Ms. Adams' smartly conceived unraveling of figures corseted in history honors the remarkable facts of Behn's groundbreaking career.” —NY Times. "Liz Duffy Adams' historical romp of a backstage sex farce about Restoration playwright Aphra Behn displays style, humor, and jaw-dropping wit." —BackStage. "Adams' historical play celebrates not only Behn's pioneering career, which Virginia Woolf famously memorialized…('All women together ought to let flowers fall upon the tomb of Aphra Behn'), but also the side of the writer's tumultuous life that Woolf dismissed as 'shady and amorous'…[Adams] has written an Aphra-disiac valentine, not a stodgy bio-play." —Time Out NY.
