Mention Nell Gwynn and most people think of Oranges!

Push further and it seems we know remarkably little about the defiant young girl who used to dress as a man wearing a beard in an attempt to try to see more of London.

Selling Oranges in a Theatre somehow led to her descendants owning the only house in Pall Mall not belonging to the Crown.

This play was first performed at Shakespeare's Globe in 2015 and is only just available for the amateur stage.  It is not a history lesson, but a fun and very entertaining near farce that somehow manages to demonstrate that even in the chauvinistic and hedonistic times of the restoration King, a woman from Coal Yard Alley could plot her own course.

And of course there are Oranges. And dresses. And Big Hats.
