Comedy returns to the Amphitheatre
William Shakespeare returns to the Amphitheatre on Friday, 7th July – this time “as luck would have it” with a comedy.
The Festival Players will be performing ‘The Merry Wives of Windsor’, a story of marriage, wealth, jealousy and lies. Sir John Falstaff, staying at Windsor and down on his luck, decides to restore his fortunes by seducing the wives of two wealthy citizens. He sends identical love letters to both.
“I will be cheater to them both, and they shall be exchequers to me…”
Prior to performance NEWPORT and MONMOUTHSHIRE COMMUNITY CHOIR will sing.
