This production contains strong language.

‘They’ve disgraced our trade. Ruined our art. They’ve put a woman on the stage.’
(Nell Gwynn Act 1 Scene 3)

Charles II’s restoration to the monarchy in 1660 was to breathe new life into London theatre. In her bawdy, joyful and irreverent account of the rise to fame of the most unlikely heroine, Nell Gwynn – from the humblest of backgrounds to London’s most successful actress and favourite mistress of the King – Swale captures beautifully the spirit of the age, giving us an affectionate, highly entertaining celebration of theatrical life itself.
