Changeling Theatre – Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale

“They’ve disgraced our trade. Ruined our art. They put a woman on the stage!”
Nell Gwynn charts the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain’s most celebrated actress, and her hard-won place in the heart of the king. But at a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the court? And at what cost?
