It is 1660 and we find young “orange seller” Nell in Drury Lane at the beginning of her unlikely career as the first female star of the stage, unaware of who is in the audience one fateful night.
Charles II has cast off the puritanical period following his father’s execution for a life of decadence and fun.
We follow the action from the playhouse to the palace and with performance, rehearsal and dressing room dalliances, see Nell win the hearts of both the public and the King.

This bawdy romp won the 2016 Olivier Award for the Best New Comedy and has been selling out to rave reviews ever since.

With live music and sumptuous costumes, this very accessible and rather naughty story is of a right royal carry on with a feminist message.

Warning – This play contains adult humour.
