Portland Stage presents The Winnipesaukee Playhouse production of OR,

​Life’s tough when you’re England’s groundbreaking first female playwright. And a spy. And you have a famous actress hiding in your closet. And her lover – the king – knocking on your door. And your ex-lover, a double-agent who may (or may not) be trying to murder said king showing up at your doorstep. It’s all in a day’s work for Aphra Behn, in Liz Duffy Adams’ fictionalized account of what may (or may not) have happened to this real-life historical figure. You’ll be asking yourself if this really is the 1660s in this double-crossing, bodice-ripping sex farce about art, politics, poetry, and intrigue.
