Shakespeare’s merry comedy of marriage, wealth, jealousy and lies.
There’s more than a hint of reality TV to this modern production of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy, directed by Fiona Laird.
Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and over-inflated egos. John Falstaff (David Troughton) plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over inflated egos. For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor...
