Curiosities, sex objects, or professional artists?

Following rave reviews of their 2016 season, Canberra’s own Pigeonhole Theatre have been selected to represent Australia at the 16th Mondial du Theatre in Monaco!

The year is 1669: a bawdy and uproarious time. The return of King Charles II has brought an end to the frugalities of puritanical England. Theatres have just reopened after years of suppression and for the first time English actresses are appearing on the public stage.

Join Playhouse Creatures director, Jordan Best and a dynamic ensemble in a moving and comedic account of the precarious lives of Restoration actresses.

WINNER: Canberra Area Theatre Awards for Best Ensemble, Best Director (Jordan Best) and Best Production
