Edward Kynaston is the Restoration's finest "feminine" actor. However, he finds his career, and his position in society, taken away from him when Charles II decides he only wants "real" women actors on the stage. Compleat Female Stage Beauty is a comic play about finding your feet in a changing world.
Written by the screenwriter of Casanova and The Duchess, but rarely seen onstage in the UK, the play was adapted as the film Stage Beauty with a cast including Rupert Everitt, Hugh Bonneville and Clare Danes.
This is a rumbustious and bawdy comedy that reflects the spirit of the age it depicts, and contains adult themes and language. Not suitable for children.
