London, 1660, King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things loud, extravagant and sexy. At Drury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is causing stirrings amongst theatre-goers. Nell Gwynn charts the rise of an unlikely heroine from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain’s most celebrated actress and her hard-won place in the heart of the King. At a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court?
A deliciously bawdy production bursting with song and dance which pays homage to a woman incredibly ahead of her time.
