There's more than a hint of reality TV to this modern production of Shakespeare's hilarious comedy, directed by Fiona Laird.
For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor ... RSC Associate Artist David Troughton takes on the role of Sir John following his masterful performance in Titus Andronicus last year.
Down on his luck in the suburbs, Sir John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men.
Unknown to him, it's the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating his comeuppance amid a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.
