Dramsoc presents: Playhouse Creatures


By April De Angelis

This week Bristol University is staging 'Playhouse Creatures', which insiders claim is set to be one of Dramsoc's most compelling performances of the year. It is the latest project of the University's acclaimed director Holly Roughan, who advertises the play as an 'earthy' and 'gritty' drama; one that intriguingly seeks to discover 'if sex really does sell'?

'Playhouse Creatures follows the precarious lives of the first female actresses, and the gentlemen whom they entangle. Brothels, sexism, abortions, heartbreak and poverty, the play is based on real historical characters and events' says Roughan.
