Synopsis


She's got charm and wit, and the king by her side.


It's 17th century London, and Nell Gwynn is an orange-hawker.


After heckling at the theatre, she meets prestigious actor Charles Hart who takes her under his wing.


Nell soon causes merry mayhem in a male-dominated world by becoming one of the first female actors, as well as Hart's lover.


When Charles II grants permission for women to act, he sees charming Nell onstage and becomes besotted with her.


Despite having a wife and a mistress, he takes her from Hart and they begin their own affair.


Nell soon faces threats from the king's chief minister to pick the theatre or the king.


But how will she choose?


Filled with bawdy jokes, comical characters and songs and dances, Nell Gwynn is a true love story set against an often farcical theatrical world.
