Katie Boyle in The Merry Wives of Windsor

Thursday 18th April 2019

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.

'The Merry Wives of Windsor' is one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies. This interactive version of the play brings the bard's crazy array of characters to life, all played by one (very fit) actress. Visit the town of Windsor - maybe you'll have the chance to interact with Falstaff yourself . . .

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'. Katie will be on tour for much of 2019 with her theatre company, Sparrow & Boyle Entertainment.
