Shakespeare's Globe: The Merry Wives of Windsor

Poster for Shakespeare's Globe: The Merry Wives of Windsor

The first in a series of four filmed Shakespeare stage productions, captured live in 2010 at the Globe Theatre in London. More

"Imagining that Mistress Ford (Sarah Woodward) and Mistress Page (Serena Evans)  have each fallen for him, the fat knight Sir John Falstaff (Christopher Benjamin) decides to seduce them both, as much for their husbands’ money as for their personal charms. Wise to the old rogue’s tricks, the women turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations and a very damp laundry bas­ket. Shakespeare’s brilliantly constructed farce – often described as the forerunner to today’s sitcoms – bursts with colour and humour." (Shakespeare's Globe)
