Mistresses set for Square Chapel

Yorkshire Post - Culture & The Guide - - AGE -

ADRUNKEN Sailor Theatre Com­pany re­turns to Square Chapel, Hal­i­fax, with a new play, Mistresses.

Cre­ated by award-win­ning play­wright and TV writer Joan Green­ing, Mistresses is about the women who were loved by kings and fa­mous artists through­out his­tory.

With equal parts pathos and bawdy hu­mour, the lives of Nell Gwynn, Lil­lie Langtry, Mary Robin­son and Dorothy Jor­dan are clev­erly wo­ven to cre­ate this new his­tor­i­cal drama.

The com­pany played to a full house at Square Chapel in 2008 with their com­edy show Mut­ton.
