London, 1660. King Charles II has exploded onto the scene with a love of all things extravagant and sexy. And in the West End, a young Nell Gwynn is causing a stir amongst the theatregoers...

Following their performances of Jane Eyre and On the March, our 17|25 Young Company present Nell Gwynn - a vibrant ensemble production of Jessica Swale’s Olivier Award-winning and vivacious celebration of 17th century theatrical life.

This warm-hearted, bawdy comedy charts the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her impoverished roots as an orange seller to her success as Britain's most celebrated actress, winning the adoration of the public and the heart of the King. But at a time when women are second-class citizens, will her charm and spirit be enough to protect her from the dangers of the Court?

Duration: 2 hours 30mins with interval

“So looking forward to seeing our brilliant Young Company
in this ribald, riotous comedy!

New OP Patron Gugu Mbatha-Raw garnered rave reviews as Nell in the original
production at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.

Bet we can match them!”


Louise Chantal
Director/CEO

    Wed 24 Apr

    Ryan lives in a world consumed by image and obsession, where selfworth is measured in muscle mass and self-improvement becomes self-destruction. Written and performed by Christopher Wollaton, Brawn is a raw, emotional play exploring a young man’s isolating battle with body image, male identity and the cost of perfection.

  • Ian McKellen On Stage

    Tue 30 Apr - Wed 1 May

    A message from Ian McKellen: I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney. Live theatre has always been thrill...

  • Love/Sick

    Tue 7 - Sat 11 May

    For the romantic, the cynic and the sick of heart Love/Sick is a play about the kind of love you won’t find in fairy-tales. Dark, funny and heart-breaking in equal measure, happy endings are far from guaranteed. John Cariani’s nine short plays sharply cut across the full spectrum of romantic relationships, from young love to old flames. There’s no sterile, airbrushed prince and princess...
