WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Wigs, corsets, music, murder, marriage, sex, scandal, love, and poetry — blimey! The Libertine is a rich, dynamic play by Stephen Jeffreys, never before staged in Boston. Chronocling the life and exploits of 17th c. poet John Wilmot, the play is equal parts gritty, funny, sexy, dark and moving. Under the innovative direction of Eric Tucker, the audience will sit on the stage, just a breath away from an epic ensemble of 13 actors. A unique, theatrical event not to be missed!
