Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s raucous comedy The Merry Wives Of Windsor. In this mischievous play, jealousy, disguise and seduction lead to hilarious and unexpected results.

Prepare for a carnival of passion and imagination, as The Fools present this rip-roaring Shakespearean comedy, come rain come shine, in the great British outdoors! This Shakespearean classic will be getting the full Three Inch Fools treatment: live music-making, deft physicality and vibrant story-telling. Expect fast-paced drama, plenty of musical instruments and many a quick costume change along the way!

This performance is an outdoor performance. We recommend that you bring blankets/chairs/cushions etc. to sit on. Come prepared for the weather with warm coats and waterproofs etc, as the performance will continue come rain come shine! We ask that you don’t bring umbrellas as these can obscure the view for other people in the audience. 7pm start time, picnics welcome from 6pm. The performance will last approximately 120 minutes (+ a 20 minute interval).

This performance is family-friendly, and under 5s are free!
