The Live Cinema Series continues with the current production of The Merry Wives of Windsor by The Royal Shakespeare Company on Wednesday, October 10 at 6:00 p.m. This performance is filmed live in Stratford-upon-Avon and rebroadcast to select theaters. A portion of the proceeds ($1/ticket) will benefit Shakespeare Walla Walla.
Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff 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…
David Troughton returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company as John Falstaff, following his recent title role in Titus Andronicus. Fiona Laird directs.
