Wokingham Theatre: '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 a stir among 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 at a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court?
This joyful play earned local author Jessica Swale an Olivier Award in 2016 for 'Best New Comedy' and we are proud to be the first amateur theatre company to be given the rights to perform it.
Directed by Nicky Allpress.
Tickets: £12 Adult can be booked online from the theatre.
