THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR: A new version of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and overinflated egos. Sir John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. But it’s the women of Windsor who pull the strings and in a world of wealth, glamour and ‘well jel’ wives, they finally tell Sir John to ‘shut up’. The only way is Windsor in this outrageous and fun-filled new version, directed by Fiona Laird.
The Royal Shakespeare Company creates theatre at its best, made in Stratford-upon-Avon and shared around the world. We produce an inspirational artistic programme each year, setting Shakespeare in context, alongside the work of his contemporaries and today’s writers. Everyone at the RSC - from actors to armourers, musicians to technicians - plays a part in creating the world you see on stage. All our productions begin life at our Stratford workshops and theatres and we bring them to the widest possible audience through our touring, residencies, live broadcasts and online activity. So wherever you experience the RSC, you experience work made in Shakespeare’s home town.
