OR, directed by Ellie Schwetye
OR, takes place (mostly) during one night in the life of Aphra Behn, poet, spy, and soon to be the first professional female playwright. Sprung from debtors' prison after a disastrous overseas mission, Aphra is desperate to get out of the spy trade. She has a shot at a production at one of only two London companies, if she can only finish her play by morning, despite interruptions from sudden new love, actress Nell Gwynne; complicated royal love, King Charles II; and very dodgy ex-love, double-agent William Scott—who may be in on a plot to murder the king in the morning. Can Aphra resist Nell's charms, save Charles' life, win William a pardon, and launch her career, all in one night?

• SATE is casting the following roles:
o Aphra Behn
o King Charles II (and others)
o Role of Nell Gwynne (and others) has been cast.
• Production Dates: February 18-27, 2015 (Wednesday through Sunday performances from Feb. 18-22 and Wednesday-Friday performances from Feb. 25-27 ) at The Chapel

One Flea Spare, directed by Ellie Schwetye
One Flea Spare is the story of a wealthy couple preparing to flee their home in plague-ravaged 17th Century London when a mysterious sailor and a young girl sneak into their boarded up house. Now, quarantined together for 28 days, the only thing these strangers fear more than the Plague is each other.
