The 102nd season of Theatre at Auburn University begins with “Playhouse Creatures,” on Sept. 25, and runs through Oct. 4, on the Telfair Peet Theatre Main Stage. Daydrie Hague, professor of Theatre, directs “Playhouse Creatures,” which was written by April DeAngelis in 1993. The show takes place in 1669, and the English monarchy has been restored. England’s theatres have re-opened after 18 years of Puritan rule, and for the first time in British history women can legally perform on public stages. Playwright De Angelis offers a touching, funny and entertaining look at five of these pioneering women who struggle to survive in a world that views them largely as strange and novel, “Playhouse Creatures.” This play contains mature themes and language.
