OR, is an amusing and revealing historification take on the Western world’s first recognized woman playwright, and her supposed relationships with Charles II, the King of England, and Nell Gwynn, one of the most famous actresses of her time. The Dobama production is long on farce and fine acting! It makes for a entertaining evening of theatre.
If your choice is to stay at home and binge watch the newest drivel from TV Land OR to see a really great production, you are strongly advised to pick the latter OR regret your choice. The show is fresh and funny and puts real people in historic situations that show that not much has changed in 345 years Or so. Trust that your time will not be wasted in this evening of madcap farce and hisdromedy that promises to be one of the hits of the season. Do not miss this show OR you will be sORry.To see a full review of this show, read Mark Horning's blog.
