About Nell Gwynn
Behold the year of the woman: 1665. An orange seller from the London streets of Drury Lane steps onto the stage and becomes the darling of the Restoration theater - and favorite mistress to none other than King Charles II. Commissioned by Shakespeare's Globe, this sparkling portrait of a rare woman won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. The DCist calls it "loving and resplendent...a romantic comedy of the highest order" and BroadwayWorld hails NELL GWYNN as "nothing short of miraculous...get thee to the Folger!"
