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 Simon Callow (Falstaff), Judi Dench (Mistress Quickly), Alistair McGowan (Frank Ford), Scarlett Strallen (Anne Page), Alexandra Gilbreath (Mistress Ford), Haydn Gwynne (Mistress Page), Tobias Beer (Simple), Robert Burt (Host), Paul Chahidi (Dr Caius), Christopher Colley (Jack Rugby), Ian Conningham (Nym), Martin Crewes (Fenton), Jeffrey Dench (Shallow), Dominic Colchester (John), Rob Edwards (Page), Anna Lowe (Maid), Brendan O'Hea (Pistol), Ian Pirie (Bardolph), Simon Thomas (Robert), Lisa Thorner (Maid), Simon Trinder (Slender), Ian Hughes (Evans), Mary Doherty (Maid), Matt Cross (Wart).
