The Maltings Theatre's own productions of The Merry Wives of Windsor and Henry V will feature throughout the two week run and performances of both plays will bookend the programme.

With strict planning and safety measures in place, the venue will be able to accommodate 220 audience members utilising the full height and all three levels of the atmospheric amphitheatre.
