Shakespeare meets ‘The Only Way is Essex’

THE only way is Windsor in a new production of Shakespeare’s comedy ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’, which will be broadcast to the Marine Theatre in Lyme Regis on Wednesday, September 12 live from Stratford.

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.

David Troughton returns to the Royal Shakespeare Company as John Falstaff, following his recent title roles in ‘Titus Andronicus’ and Gloucester in ‘King Lear’.
