Full of humour and bawdy wit, this new comedy will transport you into the wanton world of the English Restoration. King Charles II lies ill; Nell Gwyn, once the brightest star of the theatre, rages against her fate. What will become of her if Charles is summoned to his Maker? Mistress Gwyn and Margery, her maid, lead us a merry dance, filled with their laughter, their tears and Nell's enchanting songs of the baroque: a rollicking romp that ends with a sting in its tail.Performers Elizabeth Mansfield (Nell Gwyn), Angela Curran (Margery).
