‘All women together, ought to let flowers fall upon the grave of Aphra Behn, for it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds.’ Virginia Woolf
A divided England, casting up its exiles on European shores: four young English lions, Naples, carnival, and the European objects of their affections. The English language’s first professional female playwright’s masterpiece in a contemporary adaptation by the team behind Central’s productions of The Suicide, Mary Stuart and The Devils.
