Nell Gwynn

“They’ve never seen anything like it…”

A humble orange seller from the seamy streets of London employs her talent and wits to become the darling of the Restoration stage. Nell soon attracts the attention of Charles II and finds herself torn between two very different worlds. Commissioned by Shakespeare’s Globe, this sparkling portrait of a rare woman earned accolades in London, including a 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. This heart-warming and hilarious look at the most unlikely of heroines is “an absolute treat” (The Times).
