Simon Stride with Nellie in the 1990 Alley Theatre production

Nellie, is an older prostitute at the place Lucy works. she is flirty, and street smart, but she also knows the full harshness and struggles of life for women like her. Nellie has been in the show since it's 1990 World Premiere at The Alley Theatre.

In many versions of the show Nellie is the waitress who serves Dr Henry Jekyll and Mr Utterson when they first visit.

For the 1997 Broadway production the darker parts of Nellie's character were inhanced and she was renamed Gwenny. Most later versions of the show have reverted back to using Nellie, but with a role more similar to Gwenny's, though on occasion both characters appear.
