Nell Gwynn - Dolphin Theatre
by Jessica Swale
Directed by Syd Mannion
16 Nov–8 Dec
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.
“This is a right royal treat. Go.”
“Jessica Swale has written a glorious celebration of theatrical life.”
