During 2017, Orange Girl Productions will be taking Nell on some exciting new ventures, beginning with a mini-tour of the South of England in March, comprising two dates in Brighton and Surrey:
The Iron Duke Pub, Brighton - Wednesday, 8th March, 2017
Based at The Iron Duke pub and guest house, this intimate theatre is just ten minutes' walk from Brighton town centre. We'll be bringing "Nell" here as part of a double bill with A Monkey With Cymbals' production of "The Masks of Aphra Behn". Both shows will be presented on International Women's Day (8th March), as part of Sweet's annual Women in Theatre Festival. Tickets may be purchased individually, but there is a discount if both shows are booked together.
Tickets: £7 each, or £12 for both.
Booking details will be available on the Sweet website shortly.
Thames Ditton, Surrey - Friday, 10th March, 2017 (7.30pm)
A Monkey with Cymbals and Orange Girl Productions present a double bill of plays at Vera Fletcher Hall:
The Masks of Aphra Behn: A compelling tale of England’s first professional female writer and her life as a spy for Charles II. Written and performed by Claire Louise Amias.
Nell Gwyn: An Epilogue: “The darling strumpet of the crowd” , Nell is celebrated for her comic acting, particularly when she gets to show her legs. Written by Laura Ingram and performed by Lucy Formby.
Edinburgh Fringe 2017!
We are also taking Nell back to the Fringe, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Our production has undergone further improvements, with revisions to the script and directorial changes to add depth and real theatrical innovation.
To complement these, our Fringe presentation will receive a branding make-over, comprising a new title - "Nell Gwyn is a Whore" - and spanking new marketing images (see above), all of which are designed to better reflect the fun and sexy spirit of the play, whilst drawing in larger numbers to better achieve our mission of presenting the stories of fully-rounded female characters to a wider audience.
