Kings & Rogues (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre)
Roger Allam (Falstaff); Jamie Parker (Hal); Dominic Rowan (Henry VIII); Ian McNiece (Cardinal Wolsey); Christopher Benjamin (Falstaff); Sue Wallace (Mistress Quickly);

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.

Miranda Raison, Dominic Rowan, Anthony Howell

Director: Mark Rosenblatt



THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR

Christopher Benjamin, Serena Evans, Sarah Woodward

Director: Christopher Luscombe


"Henry IV is the Shakespeare play that's perfectly suited to the Globe. In Dominic Dromgoole's intelligent, faithful andentertaining 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)
