By Jessica Swale

She knew how to give the audience a good time

Michal Billington described this play as ‘a love letter to the theatre and the cheerful chaos of putting on a play’. The central character is Nell, orange-seller to celebrated actress, who negotiated a good sum for herself to become the mistress of King Charles II. Nell Gwynn is a backstage tour from the heaven of Restoration London, with a mixture of bawdy humour, erotic delights and energetically sensual song and dance.
