About the Show/Event
Information for The Merry Wives of Windsor at Tower Theatre, Inner London (Play). Falstaff gets him come-uppance (three times) in this rather confused but at times immensely funny Shakespeare comedy - his only one about the middle classes. The story, almost certainly false, goes that Queen Elizabeth I so enjoyed the character of Falstaff that she asked to see him again in another play - in love. Shakespeare is supposed to have obliged with this delightful romp.
Performers Jill Davy (Mistress Ford), Helen McCormack (Mistress Page), John Chapman (John Falstaff), Sangita Modgil (Ford), Samantha Wright (Page), Maddie Gordon (Mistress Quickly/Justice Shallow), Aimee Morris (Anne Page/Host of the Garter Inn), Daniel Watson (Sir Hugh Evans), James Van Langenberg (Fenton/Nym), Flavia Corina Di Saverio (Pistol/Simple), Carlos Fain-Binda (Slender).
