Nell Gwynn emerges from the streets of Drury Lane into the kings court. The quiet orange seller steps onto the stage of the Restoration theater and dazzles none other than Charles II. Nell is then brought to court as one of Charles favorite mistresses, leading to a dazzling and funny tale of a woman discovering how amazing she truly is. The play was adored in London last season and the Folger Theatre is the perfect setting for its Shakespearean zaniness.
