Tuesday, November 06, 2018, 7:00 pm
Folger Theatre

A new version of Shakespeare’s hilarious comedy of suburbia, wives and over-inflated egos.

Sir John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men. But it’s the women of Windsor who pull the strings and in a world of wealth, glamour and ‘well jel’ wives, they finally tell Sir John to ‘shut up’. The only way is Windsor in this outrageous and fun-filled new version, directed by Fiona Laird.

The runtime for this screening is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes, with a 20 minute intermission. Please note that a pre-show feature will begin at approximately 6:45pm. Arrive early to enjoy exclusive content from the Royal Shakespeare Company and get a behind the scenes look at the production.
