William Shakespeare

RSC: The Merry Wives of Windsor

RSC: Виндзорские насмешницы

A Royal Shakespeare Company production

Down on his luck in the suburbs, 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 over-inflated egos. For a fat Englishman, a Welshman and a Frenchman, the only way is Windsor...

David Troughton returns to the Company as John Falstaff, following his recent title role in Titus Andronicus and Gloucester in King Lear.
