Rebellion and maturity run through Shakespeare's histories like a single twisted thread, exemplified by the tearaway turned - 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.

"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.
" (The Guardian)
"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 Daily Telegraph)

It is a great joy to have these performances on record especially Roger Allam's Falstaff . He is not afraid to show the character's sheer nastyness and his comic timing is perfect. Jamie Parker's Prince Hal is the best I have seen in many a long year.His explanatory speech at the begining of Part ! sets the tone superbly.I hope to see both of them back at the Globe before too long.
Henry VIII is not often performed thesre days but this production proves what a good play it is. Dominic Rowan as Henry captured the capricious nature of the king. All jolly one minute and vicious when someone opposes him. Kate Duchene was dignified as Queen Catherine I could go on but will just finish by saying"if you are unsure about Shakespeare buy these.
