THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR 2019

13 - 27 July

Director Caroline Devlin (Merry Wives 2012, The Winter’s Tale, Othello) chosen a late 1970s setting for her second trip to Windsor, utilising the enchanting quirkiness of Stoke Park Model Railway on London Road, for the picture-perfect suburban setting of Shakespeare’s domestic comedy. Featuring a kitsch 70s kitchen-diner, garden patio, and pub lawn the enchanting Stoke Park Railway at the top end of Stoke Park in Guildford will be transformed into the seemingly tranquil world of Royal Windsor.

Drawing on classic TV programmes from the period and some of the most memorable songs from the decade, this will be a MERRY WIVES with a toe-tapping soundtrack, bell-bottom slacks, puff-sleeve polyester dresses… and who knows, a British Rail train might actually turn up on time!
