Nell Gwyn

July 13th - August 25th 2007

Nell Gwyn (A humourous play)

A play about the life, loves, humour and wit of this notorious royal mistress.
Starring Carrie Laurence '...this girl possesses that rare ingredient of star quality. Buxom, sexy and funny in equal measures she uses her body in perfect harmony with her supreme comic timing!' Stage Newspaper.
This reveiw of Carrie's performance in the Adult Panto could just as easily have been made about Nell. The Market Theatre is proud to present a seven week run of this fantastic show about England's greatest bawd. From orange seller to actress, from theatrical star to royal mistress, this show is informative and drags you laughing into the lusty world of the Restoration. Witty and at times moving, we catch a glimpse of this remarkable lady who worked in her mother's whore house at the age of 10, trod the boards at 15, became Charles II's mistress at 20 and died at the age of 37.
