British Touring Shakespeare presents
The Merry Wives Of Windsor
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Andrew Hobbs
The Merry Wives Of Windsor is a hilarious romp which sees the women of Windsor gain the upper hand in a bawdy battle of the sexes with the drunken knight Sir John Falstaff. This classic farce is guaranteed to make for an unforgettable afternoon of laughter enjoying outdoor theatre at its very best.
Since 1999, British Touring Shakespeare have delighted audiences all around the world with critically acclaimed productions that are fresh, energetic and accessible.
In 2020, they were one of the first theatre companies to stage live performances during the recovery from the pandemic at socially distanced outdoor venues with their outstanding tour of The Two Gentlemen Of Verona, and they continued to do so last year with both their hilarious production of Twelfth Night and an innovative adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes mystery The Hound Of The Baskervilles which toured the UK to great popular and critical acclaim.
With this year’s tour of The Merry Wives Of Windsor and Dracula, they are delighted to once again help ensure that the magic of open air theatre is a British tradition that people can continue to enjoy.
“To be honest, in an ideal world, Shakespeare probably IS better when performed outdoors. And in an ideal world it would always be performed by British Touring Shakespeare.” – Dave Evans, Remote Goat
