The Merry Wives of Windsor

Not one of Shakespeare’s better efforts, but still a fun afternoon. This sir John Falstaff is definitely the fool, not the sad drunk. Geraint Wynn Davies has a lot of fun with the role and the audience has fun, too.
Lucy Peacock and Laura Condin as the “wives” of the title, wake the audience up with their Pentrance and keep us awake to the end. Tom McCamus as Master George Page and Tom Rooney as Master Fraancis Ford are excellent husbands who find out to their chagrin that thier wives know best.
Lots of great performers in smaller roles and nice staging.

Theatre junkie, who thinks live theatre is the ultimate form of living on the edge. You never know what will happen when an actor steps on the stage.

    I thought I'd commented on this one at the time. Well, now it is December and I have to say I have a pleasant, but not strong, memory of the production. It was fun; what more can you ask of MWoW?
