King Charles II lies ill
Nell Gwyn - his royal whore, once the brightest star of the Restoration theatre - rages against her fate
What will become of her if Charles is summoned to his Maker?
What perils will befall the English nation?
Mistress Gwyn and Margery, her maid, lead us a merry dance, filled with their laughter, their tears, and Nell's enchanting songs of the Baroque
This rollicking romp is full of humour and bawdy wit
But ends with a sting in its tail ...
