Winner of 2016 Olivier Award for Best New Comedy

1660 Drury Lane. Charles II has cast off London’s drab, puritanical past with a love of all things loud and sexy. A young Nell Gwynn is selling oranges for sixpence in the burgeoning West End theatre scene unaware of who is in the audience one fateful night.

Jessica Swale’s warm-hearted, bawdy bio-drama tells the story of an unlikely heroine, who went from lowly orange seller to win the adoration of the public and the heart of the King.

In Association with Nica Burns, Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Paula Marie Black.
