"The roguish and foolish Knight, Falstaff, schemes to woo two married women to get his hands on their husbands’ money, but the wiley Wives of Windsor are more than a match for him. The Festival Players Theatre Company brings you this hilarious and colourful comedy in an all-male, fast-paced, costumed production (2 hours + interval) A summer feast of farce."
Please note, this is an outdoor performance and will take place whatever the weather. Please come prepared for all that the elements may offer. There is no option to move the performance inside the Mansion should the weather be bad.
