"They have disgraced our trade, ruined our art...they have put a woman on the stage!"

Nell Gwynn

By Jessica Swale

Thursday 31st March - Saturday 2nd April and 5th -9th April

7.45pm Main Stage

Nell Gwynn, infamous orange seller turned actress, was one of the first women to appear on the London stage when Charles II became King and reopened the theatres in the 1660s - the Restoration. She achieved fame and fortune and a degree of notoriety when she became one of the King's favourite mistresses. Based on the accounts of the time, this is a romp through the life of a feisty, talented woman way ahead of her times. Join us for this modern take on a restoration comedy full of witty dialogue, music, singing, dancing and a wee bit of naughtiness too.

This amateur production is presented by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books Ltd
