Who was the first woman to perform on the English stage? What’s her name? And why don’t we know it?
In 1660 a woman appeared onstage as Desdemona in Shakespeare’s Othello. In 2024, a woman appears onstage wondering who she was.
Join a group of actors-turned-restoration-players as past meets present and they attempt to re-write history this mystery.
This work in progress features original music and a mixture of fact and imagined dialogue, all inspired by the woman without a name who rose to fame. A play with songs by Annabelle Terry, directed by Ellie Hurt.
