An Historical Comedy

The play opens in a 1660s playhouse in Drury Lane, London, where Nell Gwynn is an ‘orange hawker’ whose wit and beauty soon get her noticed. She becomes an actress, causing merry havoc in a traditionally male world, and wins the heart of King Charles II. Can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court? First performed in 2015 at The Globe, London.

DIRECTOR’S NOTE
Nell Gwynn is a tour de force of comedy, drama, song, dance and music. It follows the fortunes of one of England’s first female actresses, from orange hawker to actress, to the King’s mistress. The restoration of the monarchy also meant the restoration of theatre too. Under the Puritans, theatre in any form had been outlawed. King Charles II returned from exile in France and established two theatre companies – The Duke’s Company and The King’s Company. Practically every character in Nell Gwynn is a historical figure, and every event portrayed is historically documented.
