Gemma Arterton stars in this riotously funny West End comedy
2016 Olivier Award Winner – Best New Comedy. Following a critically acclaimed, sell-out season of 11 performances at Shakespeare's Globe, Nell Gwynn is making its way to the West End. It's 1660: the Puritans have run away with their drab grey tails between their legs, Charles II has exploded on to the scene with a love of all things loud, French and sexy, and, at Drury Lane, a young Nell Gwynn is selling oranges for sixpence. Starring the award winning Gemma Arterton, Jessica Swale's blissfully entertaining comedy is an awesome celebration of an unlikely heroine that's earned it's lead actress a nomination for the "Best Actress" Olivier. Nominated for the "Best New Comedy" Olivier. Named for the Greek god of the arts and leader of the muses, The Apollo Theatre first opened its doors in February 1901 and was designed as a venue for musical entertainment. Located on Shaftesbury Avenue, it's one of the most striking buildings of the West End's fleet. ★★★★☆ – Time Out ★★★★☆ – The Times ★★★★☆ – Daily Telegraph ★★★★☆ – Daily Mail ★★★★☆ – The Observer ★★★★☆ – Financial Times Recommended for ages 8 and up.
