★★★★‘ONLY A STONE COULD NOT DELIGHT IN DAVID TROUGHTON’S FALSTAFF’ SUNDAY TIMES
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 Company as John Falstaff, following his recent title role in Titus Andronicus and Gloucester in King Lear.
The Merry Wives of Windsor will be broadcast live to cinemas on 12 September 2018.
