“Nell Gwynn”is a rip roaring tale of a girl who made good against all the odds set against a background of Royal intrigue, theatrical innovation and….oranges.
This hilarious, bawdy but touching comedy set in 1660s London charts the rise of our unlikely heroine from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain's most celebrated actress, leading to her hard won place in the heart of King Charles II.
The play premiered at Shakespeare's Globe in 2015 and subsequently transferred to the West End when it won the Olivier award for Best New Comedy.
Originally planned for Spring 2020, the show has now been rescheduled for Thursday 30 September, Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October 2021. Tickets are available now from the link above.
