    Banbury Cross Players presents: Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale

    The Mill Arts Centre, Spiceball Park Road, Banbury, Oxfordshire OX16 5QE

    Banbury Cross Players presents: NELL GWYNN BY JESSICA SWALE

    Banbury Cross Players will perform Nell Gwynn by Jessica Swale at The Mill Arts Centre from 12th to 15th February 2020.

    The play charts the rise of Restoration heroine Nell Gwynn from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to becoming Britain’s most celebrated actress – winning the heart of King Charles II along the way.

    But at a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court?

    Premièring in 2015 at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the play transferred to the West End in 2016 and won the Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. It is a bawdy, raucous and warm homage to a woman truly ahead of her time – one of the first female actresses on the stage.

    Curtain up is 7.30pm.

    Tickets are available from The Mill Box Office online, or on 01295 279002.

    Nell Gwynn will be directed by Clare Lester.

    Clare directed Calendar Girls and took a major part in The 39 Steps.
