Jessica Swale’s blissfully funny Nell Gwynn visits Bath direct from critically acclaimed sell out runs in the West End and at the Globe Theatre.
1660 Drury Lane. Charles II has cast off London’s drab, puritanical past with a love of all things loud, French and sexy. A young Nell Gwynn is selling oranges for sixpence in the burgeoning West End. Little does she know who is in the audience one fateful night.
English Touring Theatre presents this warm hearted, bawdy comedy with Laura Pitt-Pulford (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers) as the unlikely heroine who won the adoration of the public and the heart of the King.
Christopher Luscombe directed the acclaimed production of Rattigan’s While the Sun Shines for the Theatre Royal Bath’s Summer Season. Other recent work includes Love’s Labour’s Lost, Much Ado About Nothing, The Madness of George III, Enjoy and Spamalot.
