Laura Denker interviews Alison Lawrence on the subject of her play "And All for Love". Set in 1660, following the restoration of the monarchy, And All for Love is a new play that explores the friendship between the celebrated actress Elizabeth Barry and the not-so-celebrated actress Winifred Gosnell (also housemaid to the diarist Samuel Pepys.) Between them stands Edward Kynaston, the great actor once famous for his portrayals of women. A romantic comedy that celebrates what two women did for the love of the theatre, and for the love of their lives.
