Desperate to get out of a career in espionage, up-and-coming playwright Aphra Behn just landed her first commission for a professional company—if she can deliver her play by dawn. But in a world of sex and spies, can Aphra save the life of King Charles II and launch her budding writing career all in one night? With echoes of Restoration comedy, this playful farce is a rush of madcap antics and rollicking intrigue.
