Nell Gwynn – a restoration comedy

Nell Gwynn
By Jessica Swale
Composer Nigel Hess
Directed by Lynn Bushell

Pretty, witty, Nell Gwynn (Isabella McClymont) a lowly orange seller rises to become the mistress of King Charles II (Greg Webb) in this warm-hearted, bawdy comedy.  1660s London casts off its drab, puritanical past and embraces everything extravagant and sexy. In the burgeoning world of women on the stage premiere actor Charles Hart (Stefan van Trigt) trains her as an actor-ess and they become lovers. Unaware of her success and who is watching, Nell mesmerises and captures the heart of the public and the King. Who wins the heart of our unlikely heroine?

April in Paris
by John Godber
Director Margaret Jesson

Limelight Theatre is seeking interest from 1 male and 1 female actor, aged 40 to 60 years to play in this hilarious comedy about a Yorkshire couple Bet and Al who win a Romantic Break to Paris. This is their first time abroad as they hilariously tackle their phrasebook, fend off muggers and “enjoy” french cuisine. But it all has a profound affect on how they view the world when they return home.

If you are interested in telling their story under direction of Margaret Jesson please be in touch with her by phoning 06 379 85 39, or Text 0275 999 609 as soon as possible.

Please be aware the rehearsal schedule will be intense as there are only 8 weeks until showtime at the end of August.
