Nell Gwynn

16 - 24 Mar - Capitol Theatre

Presented by Tamworth Dramatic Society

A radiantly comical, rollicking celebration of history and heart

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 casts the pretty, witty orange seller Nell Gwynn as its first 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 sensation.

“…as ripe and juicy as the fruits its heroine hawks.”  Independent

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.


This ‘made in Tamworth’ production by Tamworth Dramatic Society is sure to be a radiantly comical, rollicking night in the theatre!...and a dog!
