Wicked Creatures by Emma Carter Lights up: England, the 1800s. Poor Archibald Worthington doesn't know what he's in for when the mysterious, cross-dressing Sonja Smithson invites him into her home for the evening. Suddenly a prisoner to Sonja and her two companions, the incorruptibly good Emily Clearwater, and the humorously foul-mouthed prostitute Clara Hollowell, Archibald is forced to perform sexual acts in the pursuit of the greatest scientific invention his captors can imagine: the perfect female contraceptive. Darkly funny, surprisingly thoughtful, this play explores the roles and lives of both sexes in the Victorian era, and the true duality of human nature. From the writer who brought you Junk. Featuring Ellen Kirk, Emma Carter, Laura Jacobs, Brian Huther and Curtis Smith.
