Nell Gwynn By Jessica Swale

She’s got charm and wit, and the king by her side.

It’s 17th century London, and Nell Gwynn is an orange-hawker. After heckling at the theatre, she meets prestigious actor Charles Hart who takes her under his wing. Nell soon causes merry mayhem in a male-dominated world by becoming one of the first female actors, as well as Hart’s lover.

When Charles II grants permission for women to act, he sees charming Nell onstage and becomes besotted with her. Despite having a wife and a mistress, he takes her from Hart and they begin their own affair. Nell soon faces threats from the king’s chief minister to pick the theatre or the king. But how will she choose?

Filled with bawdy jokes, comical characters and songs and dances, Nell Gwynn is a true love story set against an often farcical theatrical world.

Tickets on sale at Thursday meetings from the convener, Rosemary Hart, price £10

While The Sun Shines by Terence Rattigan

"I'll tell you but you won’t believe me. I slept in the same bed with an earl... No, not a girl, stupid, an earl"
On the eve of his wedding, the young Earl of Harpenden – Bobby to his friends – has offered his room to Joe, an American soldier he drunkenly met the night before. When Bobby’s fiancée Lady Elizabeth turns up, Joe makes a move, thinking she must be Bobby’s ex, the wonderful Mabel Crum.
But a Free French lieutenant also has eyes for her...
And to complicate matters, Bobby’s future father in law turns up too.

London in the Blitz, and identities get confused: time to make hay...

The first major London revival of this delectably charming comedy in decades. Rattigan’s greatest hit played for over 1,000 performances in the West End when it opened in 1943.

★★★★ “a slickly plotted wartime comedy of romantic entanglements and mislaid affections” The Telegraph

Tickets £22.50 can be purchased from Rosemary Hart at a Thursday meeting. Those members who do not attend on Thursdays should contact Rosemary by phone or email.
