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. Works: Henry IV (Parts I & II)Roger Allam (Sir John Falstaff);Jamie Parker (Prince Hal); Oliver Cotton (King Henry IV); Barbara Marten (Lady Northumberland); William Gaunt (Shallow); Paul Rider (Bardolph); Jason Baughan (Westmoreland); Director: Dominic Dromgoole Henry VIIIDominic Rowan (Henry VIII); Ian McNeice (Cardinal Wolsey); Kate Ducháªne (Queen Katherine); Miranda Raison (Anne Boleyn); Anthony Howell (Duke of Buckingham); Director: Mark Rosenblatt The Merry Wives of WindsorChristopher Benjamin (Sir John Falstaff); Philip Bird (Dr Caius); Sue Wallace (Mistress Quickly); Gregory Gudgeon (Nym); Michael Garner (George Page); Serena Evans (Meg Page); Ceri-Lyn Cissone (Anne Page); Sarah Woodward (Alice Ford); Nathan Amzi (Simple); Peter Gale (Shallow); Andrew Havill (Ford); Jonty Stephens (Host); Paul Woodson (Pistol); Barnaby Edwards (Rugby); William Belchambers (Slender); Gerard McCarthy (Fenton); Director: Christopher Luscombe Press Reviews "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."
