Nell Gwynn
By Jessica Swale

19:45, Tue 19th November 2019 - Sat 23rd November 2019 at ADC Theatre
Michaelmas Week 6

The Olivier-Award winning play by Jessica Swale brings the life of Nell Gwynn, seventeenth century actress and mistress of Charles II, to the stage. Charting this unlikely heroine’s rise from orange seller to star of the stage when women were first permitted to perform, the play follows her ensuing stardom and the chaos that ensues as she finds herself thrown into navigating a male-dominated world. Catching the attention of the king, she is left using her charm and spirit to protect herself from the dangers of the Court. Swale’s hilarious take on the historical tale mixes raunchy comedy with a strong dose of feminism, and was first performed at Shakespeare’s Globe, before transferring to the West End.
