Capital Stage presents “OR,” by Liz Duffy Adams and directed by Peter Mohrmann.

This sexy and irreverent comedy follows Aphra Behn as she gets out of the spy trade and into show biz, if she can only write her play without interruptions from her love life — celebrity Nell Gwynne, King Charles II, and double-agent William Scott, among others.

While war rages and Aphra and her friends celebrate free love, cross-dressing and pastoral lyricism, the 1660s start to look a lot like the 1960s. Verse or prose, now or then, love or death … and a lot of kissing.

“Or,” runs through July 17 with performances at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays; 8 p.m. on Thursdays and Fridays; and 2 p.m. on Sundays.
