Much Ado About Falstaff - Kick in the Head Productions
Event Information

Saturday 23rd May 2020

When: 5.30pm   
Where: Abbey House

Kick In The Head follow up recent successes with Old Herbaceous, Fagin?, Three Men in a Boat and Choice Grenfell with a new play about Sir John Falstaff…a rogue, a philanderer and a glutton, but also one of Shakespeare’s greatest and enduring comic creations.

In this new comedy by Simon Downing we find Falstaff, played by Giles Shenton (Old Herbaceous & Three Men in a Boat) in his bedroom in the Boars Head being nursed by Mistress Quickly, played by Suzanna Walters (Choice Grenfell).

The creditors arrive demanding payment. Will Falstaff resort to marrying Mistress Quickly in order to pay off his debts? Will he turn teetotal? Will he mellow in his old age? Find out the answers to all these important questions that Shakespeare never bothered to answer and join Falstaff for an evening of jollity, frivolity, a definite lack of coequality and more Shakespearean insults than ever previously heard on a theatrical stage!

This event takes place at Abbey House on Saturday 23rd May.

Doors open: 5.30pm

Performances starts: 6pm

Advance tickets:

£14 Adult

£10 Concession

This is one of three Kick in the Head productions taking place at Abbey House in 2020 - a ticket for all three is available until March 27 2020 here.
