Reno, NV. Playing January 17 through February 8, 2014, Bill Ware directs The Compleat Female Stage Beauty. In this dramatic comedy written by Jeffrey Hatcher, the rich territory of the English theatre is explored. In 1661 the most famous portrayer of female roles on the London stage was a performer named "Kynaston." Like every other player permitted to enact such roles, Kynaston was a man. He's the toast of the town and the very secret "mistress" of the Duke of Buckingham. But when an unknown named Margret Hughes plays Desdemona one night at an illegal theater, instead of stopping the show, the ever-game King Charles II changes the law to allow women to act. By the stroke of a pen, Kynaston's world is turned upside-down. Thanks to the support of a generous patron, the costumes in Bruka’s production of Stage Beauty are from The American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco and styled by Lady Hull.
