RADS present ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’
Venue: The Georgian Theatre Royal
Time: 7.30pm on THUR 23 TO SAT 25 JULY & THUR 30 JULY TO SAT 1 AUG
RADS introduce Mistresses Page and Ford – the witty,collusive and indomitable Merry Wives of Windsor.

Hard-up and seeking to restore his riches, lovable rogue Sir John
Falstaff attempts to seduce both of them simultaneously. But the
wooed Windsor women see through his schemes, which go awry –
with disastrous and hilarious consequences.
THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR was one of the first English language
plays to celebrate middle class characters, and to feature women
as the prime movers of the comedy. Tradition has it that, after
watching Henry IV Part I, Elizabeth I asked Shakespeare to write a play showing Falstaff in love. Hence: Sir John in love, or lust,or greed (nobody’s quite sure which) with those merry wives.
Tickets from £6.50 to £12.50
