A New Production Celebrating Women and the Power and Beauty of Nature

Double-meanings, disguises and dirty laundry abound in The Merry Wives of Windsor as Sir John Falstaff sets about improving his financial situation by wooing Mistress Page and Mistress Ford. But the ‘Merry Wives’ quickly catch on to his tricks and decide to have a bit of fun of their own at Falstaff’s expense…

 

The Merry Wives of Windsor is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land. Drawing influences from 1930s British fashion, music and dance, this new production from Shakespeare’s Globe celebrates women, and the power and beauty of nature. With its witty mix of verbal and physical humour, the play celebrates a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.

 

Staged at the iconic Globe Theatre in London and directed by Elle While, The Merry Wives of Windsor stars Olivier Award-nominated Bryony Hannah (Call the Midwife, The Children’s Hour), Sarah Finigan (Suffragette, Upstart Crow) and Pearce Quigley (Hamlet, As You Like It) as Falstaff.
