Sprung from debtor’s prison in seventeenth-century London, after a disastrous overseas espionage mission, poet Aphra Behn is desperate to get out of the spy game. Dreaming of a destiny to become the first professional woman playwright, she actually has a shot at a London theater company—IF only she can finish the play she’s writing by dawn! Despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double agent William Scot (who may be in on a plot to murder the king in the morning)—can Aphra resist Nell’s charms, save Charles’ life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night?

Written by Liz Duffy Adams.

Directed by Chris Flaharty.
