Nell Gwynn, By Jessica Swale
Music by Nigel Hess
Directed by Keith Railton
Musical Direction by Bill Bosworth
A witty, warm-hearted and joyous celebration of the lowly orange seller who went on to win the adoration of the public and the heart of the King.
London 1660. King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things loud, extravagant and sexy. Meanwhile at Drury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is attracting attention amongst the theatregoers. The play charts the rise of an unlikely heroine from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to become a celebrated actress and the mistress of the king. But in a time when women are regarded as second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the intrigues at court
