      Over time there have been many books, plays and films about Nell Gwynn and in recent times she was a prominent character in April de Angelis’ play Playhouse Creatures and Bella Merlin constructed another play under the long winded title: Nell Gwynne: A Dramatik Essaye on Acting and Prostitution. Nell Gwynn charts the rise of an unlikely heroine, from her roots in Coal Yard Alley to her success as Britain's most celebrated actress, and her hard-won place in the heart of the King. But at a time when women are second-class citizens, can her charm and spirit protect her from the dangers of the Court?
