LONDON, 1660. The drab, grey Puritans have gone and theatre is
all the rage once more. There's a new fad for putting a woman, an
'actor-ess', on the stage and when The King's Company at Drury Lane

leading lady, its royal patron, Charles II, is immediately smitten.
Having captured the heart of her King, the unlikely heroine takes
her country by storm and becomes a 17th century media
Winner of the 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy, Jessica
Swale's brilliant and bodacious new work about theatre's most
legendary love affair is a love-letter to theatre itself and the
cheerful chaos involved in putting on a play. Hot on the heels of
its original Globe Theatre premiere and successful West End
remount, Nell Gwynn is a radiant, ravishing and rollicking
celebration of history and the heart.
