Product Description

HENRY VIII


Miranda Raison, Dominic Rowan, Anthony Howell
Director: Mark Rosenblatt

THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR


Christopher Benjamin, Serena Evans, Sarah Woodward
Director: Christopher Luscombe

Rebellion and maturity run through Shakespeare's histories like a single twisted thread, exemplified by the tearawayturned hero Hal and his forever adolescent associate Falstaff, who deserves and gets a comedy to himself in The Merry Wives of Windsor. Lives real and imagined, nobles and beggars, Tudor history and culture all spring to vivid life on the stage of the Globe Theatre in award-winning productions featuring many fine British actors and original music played by an 'authentic' Shakespearean pit band.

Review

"Henry IV is the Shakespeare play that's perfectly suited to the Globe. In Dominic Dromgoole's intelligent, faithful and entertaining new production, Sir John Falstaff, that "sweet creature of bombast", might have stopped for a pint of sack in Southwark en route for a rendezvous with Doll Tearsheet at the Boar's Head. --Guardian (Henry IV)

"Audiences tend to adore this play, in which Shakespeare genially celebrates his own middle-class English provincial background and seeks to do nothing more than entertain which he does, splendidly. The Merry Wives, with its ridiculous foreigners, jealous husbands and scenes of low farce, keeps you chuckling almost throughout. --The Telegraph (The Merry Wives of Windsor)
