In this fact-based comedy-drama set in 1663, women are finally being allowed to play themselves on stage after years of Puritan repression, only to find themselves facing all-too-timeless issues of ageism and sexism. April De Angelis' backstage play turns the spotlight onto five of the most famous of these real-life actresses, starting with the once-fetching Mary Betterton, who's losing her looks and leading roles to younger women. Then there's the ambitious ingenue Nell Gwyn, who's expected to become a plaything for the nobility while being gawked at as a novelty by male audiences. The female-focused Maiden Phoenix Theatre Company stages this Boston production of Playhouse Creatures. Learn More
Written by Richard Greenberg
Directed by Melissa DeJesus
Genius, guilt, and love tear through two generations in Richard Greenberg’s Pulitzer-nominated drama. While trying to reconcile their father’s legacy, Walker, his sister Nan, and their childhood friend Pip end up rehashing their past. In the abandoned New York City loft their parents once shared, they discover their late father’s laconic journal. When the action of the play returns to the same New York City loft thirty years in the past, the same actors relive — as the parents this time — three fateful days for which the only explanation is “three days of rain.”
Three Days of Rain debuted in 1997 in California, produced by South Coast Repertory, and moved to New York’s Manhattan Theatre Club later that year. The play was revived in 2006 with the all-star cast of Julia Roberts, Paul Rudd, and Bradley Cooper; and finally made its way across the ocean last April, produced by Nimax Theatres at the Apollo Theatre in London’s West End.
