Back in 2015, SATE produced a fictionalized account of Aphra Behn’s life in Or, by Liz Duffy Adams. Next, the SATE team partnered with Prison Performing Arts (PPA) to create an adaptation of Behn’s play, The Rover, with actors at Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correction Center in Vandalia, MO. SATE and its artists feel part of Aphra’s legacy.
Aphra Behn is widely considered to be the first English woman to make her living as a playwright. SATE produced a play about her, Or, by Liz Duffy Adams, in February 2015 and collaborated with Prison Performing Arts to adapt Behn’s play, The Rover, for the women at Women’s Eastern Reception, Diagnostic, and Correction Center in Vandalia to perform. The Rover was also the text shared by the directors in the 2020 Festival.
