Starring Katie Boyle (Hamlet, Pop-Up Globe, 2016)
Directed by award-winning character comic, Alexander Sparrow (DJ Trump)

Sir John Falstaff, the fat knight, is coming to town. Short of money to pay his men, Falstaff attempts to woo Mistress Page and Mistress Ford at the same time. When the wives discover his intentions, they seek revenge - getting the whole town of Windsor involved in the process! Featuring the infamous knight, a Welsh parson, a flamboyant hotel owner, a drunk pickpocket, and many more memorable characters. This interactive version of the play brings the bard's crazy array of characters to life, all played by one (very fit) actress.

Katie Boyle is one of NZ’s most prolific Shakespearean actors, with 10 Elizabethan productions performed over the last 5 years, including an all-female Hamlet at the Pop-Up Globe (Guildenstern and Laertes). She is also an accomplished character comic, having been nominated for eight awards in three different cities for her show, 'Pat Goldsack's Swingers Club and Brothel'.

90 minutes, including a ten minute interval.
