About the Show/Event
Information for She Ventures and He Wins at The Young Vic, West End (Play). She Ventures and He Wins caused an uproar when it was first published in the late 17th century. Written by an unknown woman and one of the earliest known female playwrights, 'Ariadne' broke the conventions of her time so much, that not only did she write under a pseudonym, but even her pseudonym was not included in the original publication. This ground-breaking play, credited with starting the great theatrical tradition of cross-dressing, is revisioned by director Sasha Milavic Davies and composer Joseph Atkins for a modern audience, telling the story of women who are tired of the old ways of dealing with affairs of the heart, and are determined to control their own romantic lives.
