      Mappa Mundi’s new production The Compleat Female Stage Beauty is set in the theatre-world of London shortly after the return to power of the monarchy in 1660. The Restoration of Charles II, following decades of puritan austerity, was a time of new-found confidence and exuberance, a period of innovation and change. The Compleat Female Stage Beauty will be performed at Theatr Mwldan, Cardigan, September 26 to 28 at 7.30pm.

      Jeffrey Hatcher’s bold and witty drama (a Restoration comedy in its own right) is based on Kynaston’s true story and is populated with well-known figures from one of history’s most beloved eras: the diary-scribbling Samuel Pepys, the Merry Monarch Charles II and ‘pretty witty’ Nell Gwynn, the Dury Lane orange-seller made good. Hatcher has produced a brilliant historical comedy, packed with period detail, but as alive and fresh and modern as though it were set today.
