Much more than a mere accessory, it is widely believed that fans were used by women in the 18th and 19th centuries to relay secret messages. In this pre-show workshop, delve into the nuanced language of the fan gesture to slyly tell your paramour the secrets of your heart. Continue practicing this age-old art long after the night is over. Included in your ticket price is your own souvenir fan and the Nell Gwynn signature cocktail to sip on during the event.
