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


The story goes that Elizabeth I was so taken with the character of Falstaff in Henry IV that she asked Shakespeare to write a comedy about the disreputable knight falling in love. The resultant play is the only comedy that Shakespeare set in his native land, and with its dexterous mingling of verbal and physical humour, The Merry Wives of Windsor inaugurated a tradition that reaches right down to the contemporary English sitcom.

Poor program without clues to identity of cast, poor direction and worth £5 but not the Fifty we paid. Conclusion could do better and unless that happens I would never visit again

A thoroughly enjoyable evening, the play was exceptionally delivered, brilliant cast. Sometimes difficult to hear and keep up with the plot. Wonderful venue, first time we had been and it lived up to expectations Definitely hire seat pads

What a great show! I wondered about the choice to stage it in the 1930 jazz age, but by the time it got to its roaring finale I was convinced. Good acting - I could hear all the lines clearly and laughed aloud the whole play. Well done.
