“They’ve disgraced our trade. Ruined our art. They’ve put a woman on the stage”.
London, 1660. King Charles II has exploded on to the scene with a love of all things ostentatious. At Dury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is causing a stir.
This year’s Winter production see’s Deptford Green Actors Company take on Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale. A hilarious, but poignant romp, shining a light in to the heady world of restoration theatre, and the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley, to her success as Britain’s most celebrated actress.
Nell Gwynn will be performed on Tuesday 18th, Wednesday 19th and Thursday 20th December at 7pm.
Tickets are £3 for adults and £1.50 for children and concessions (on sale in school from the 3rd December).
Please join us for this hysterical and touching production, perfect for the holiday season.
“As for my epitaph when I am gone, I’ll trust no poet but will write my own: Here Nelly Lies, who though she lived a slattern, yet died a princess, acting in St Catherine.”
