'Nell Gwynn's History Laid Bare' is a fabulous guide to Restoration England. From singing to storytelling to burlesque, this diverse show is putting the fascinating into facts and bringing the 17th century's sexy back. Award-winning Burlesque performer Ginger Blush takes her audience on a whirlwind tour through the life and times of the second most fabulous redhead in history and the most famous mistress of all time, Nell Gwynn. From humble beginnings as a London orange seller, to sharing the bed of King Charles II, 'Nelly' is the perfect muse for Ginger Blush's inimitable style. Full of risque parodies and absurdist pastiches 'Nell Gwynn's History Laid Bare' brings the past back alluringly to life! "a stroke of genius...her down-to-earth style is attractive and refreshing - not unlike Nell herself. This well-choreographed and well-designed tour through bawdy Restoration England inventively tells its story with pace and panache" Owen Kingston, The Croydon Citizen "The jauntily wry Ms. Blush takes us on a fascinating tour of theatrical history, burlesque secrets, and autobiography as she brings Gwynn's story to life" Katharine Kavanagh, "The show was a perfect balance of comedy, theatre, story telling and, of course, burlesque" Nick Wyschna, Managing Director Guildford Fringe Festival
