The Merry Wives of Windsor
Guildford Castle Gardens, 14 – 30 June 2012

The fat knight Sir John Falstaff is in love again (or is that lust?) with two respectable ladies, and their husband’s money. Unbeknownst to him, the two merry wives hatch a plan to teach the old rogue, and their frantic husbands, a thoroughly good lesson…join us in Guildford Castle Gardens for Shakespeare’s irresistibly fun feel-good farce, set in the early 1950s! Directed by Caroline Devlin (Richard III 2012; Hamlet 2011)

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Guildford College of Law, 12 – 22 July 2012

Four young lovers find themselves lost in a mystical wood populated by warring fairies, mischievous sprites and an earnest group of amateur actors, one of whom seems to have grown a donkey’s head…we return to the beautiful gardens of the College of Law for a magical trip into Shakespeare’s comic masterpiece. The production reunites director Charlotte Conquest and designer Neil Irish, responsible for last summer’s runaway hit The Merchant of Venice.
