This raucous, bodice-ripping comedy, Aphra Behn has a few hours to finish her breakthrough play when her ex-lover and fellow spy delivers the news that there’s a plot to kill her current lover, King Charles II.  The orange girl-turned-actress is also on hand as a seductive distraction.  Can Aphra finish her play and save the king?
