by April De Angelis
A dramatic comedy. 1669 is a bawdy and troublesome time. The king is back on the throne and theatres have recently
reopened after seventeen years of Puritan suppression. There is a surge of dramatic writing and for the first time, women are allowed on stage. This joyous play brings historical characters to life, including a young and brash Nell Gwyn. The women embrace their new-found freedom but it comes at a price. By turns, raucously funny and deeply poignant.
(Some sexual references.)
