Stage Beauty Synopsis
Ned Kynaston is a male actor of female parts, and the brightest star in the thespian firmament - beautiful, brilliant and bisexual.
But when King Charles II decrees that real women are allowed to perform on stage for the first time, Ned seems lost. The novelty of actresses grips London's audiences and Ned's own dresser, Maria, usurps him as a star performer. It is only when he is finally ordered to help her with her performance that, in a confusion of sexual chemistry, a tender love affair is born. STAGE BEAUTY is a playful and witty comedy about performing, falling in love and trying to find out who you are.
