Notes and Editorial Reviews
There’s more than a hint of reality TV to this modern production of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and over-inflated egos directed by Fiona Laird. 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 Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and overinflated egos. For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor. “Fiona Laird’s production introduces new elements that chime deliciously with the spirit of Shakespeare’s play… risky, but it all pays off.” (The Financial Times)
