Sarah Gobran & Johanne Murdock as the Merry Wives, 2012
Dir. Caroline Devlin | Des. Sarah Bacon
"Wives may be merry, and yet honest too."
The fat knight Sir John Falstaff is in love again (or is that lust?) with two respectable ladies, and their husband’s money. Unbeknown to him, the two merry wives hatch a plan to teach the old rogue, and their frantic husbands, a thoroughly good lesson.
Shakespeare’s irresistible comedy has become the blue-print for many icon British sitcoms from Fawlty Towers to The Vicar of Dibley.
Last staged by GSC in 2012 in the Castle Gardens, this time we're taking you to brand new venue at the top of Stoke Park - the enchanting Stoke Park Railway.
Cast and Creative Team to be announced in the New Year.
