This gutsy farce centres on the equally gutsy Sir John Falstaff, a fat knight in Elizabethan England who imagines that Mistress Ford and Mistress Page are both attracted to him. Eyeing their husbands' money, he decides to woo them both, but the women are up to the old lecher's tricks and turn the tables on him with a series of humiliating assignations, midnight terrors and a very damp and smelly laundry basket.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision. Please email our Customer Care team to find out more about your chosen show.
