Nell Gwynn – by Jessica Swale
London 1660, King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things loud, extravagant and sexy. At Drury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is causing stirrings amongst the theatregoers. Nell Gwynn charts the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain’s most celebrated actress, and her hard-won place in the heart of the King, but can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the court?
This exhilarating take on the heady world of restoration theatre premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe and then transferred to the West End in 2016.
Full of comedy, music and colourful costumes this production will be another exciting challenge for Sleaford Little Theatre.
