Nell Gwynn - Catch Gemma Arterton at the Apollo Theatre
This story is something of a factual fairy tale, documenting an honest courtesan, rags to riches heroine and one of the first female actresses ever to grace the stage. This plucky orange seller broke out of poverty to win the heart of the King and the admiration of the British public in the 1600s, and her legacy lives on today.
The remarkable life of the Restoration-era's superwoman is being honoured in Jessica Swale's "blissfully entertaining" West End comedy play, and you can witness Bond girl Gemma Arterton in the title role when you get Nell Gwynn tickets on StubHub.

The daughter of a portly, inebriated madam, she spent a great deal of her life serving strong booze to patrons in her mother's brothel. Some might expect a young woman to be emotionally shattered by such an anarchic upbringing, but Nell developed a passionate personality and jocularity upon which she made her fortune.
Later in her life against the backdrop of Puritanical Britain, Nell sold oranges for sixpence to the theatregoers on Drury Lane, using her wit and wisdom to become one of the first ever women to appear on the London stage. Little did she realise, Charles II is watching in the wings, enraptured by her charms...
