For more information on Bromley Little Theatre
Bromley Little Theatre returns to the Festival Theatre following last year's highly acclaimed One Man, Two Guvnors with another rip-roaring production. When she catches the eye of actor Charles Hart, Nell Gwynn begins a life-changing journey from lowly orange seller to true leading lady as Britain's most celebrated actress. Her fortunes change again when she catches another more prestigious eye, that of the King, Charles the Second, and the real adventure begins! Fighting to find her place in a world of men, are her wit and pluck enough to see Nell through?

Described as "an unending delight" by the Evening Standard, Jessica Swale's exhilarating take on the heady world of Restoration Theatre premiered at Shakespeare's Globe in 2015 before transferring to the West End and winning an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy.

"An absolute treat. A bawdy, witty and engaging romp" The Times on the recent West End Production

We all love our mums and our dads, don't we? And our children - we love them - unconditionally, don't we?

It's Laura's birthday, and she and her husband Gerry with their two sons Glyn and Adam are celebrating at a family run Mediterranean restaurant which has definitely seen better days. Glyn and his wife Stephanie have been re-united after the most recent of Glyn's many affairs, and Adam has brought along the latest of his usually unsuitable (says his mum) girlfriends, Maureen.

As the evening wears on assisted by copious alcoholic lubrication, in typical Ayckbourn style, family skeletons come hurtling out of long locked cupboards and the happy family illusion collapses with catastrophic consequences.

Brought to Hever by the same creative team behind The Pitmen Painters (2015) and One Man Two Guvnors (2016)
