He’s back! On demand, Falstaff returns to Smallhythe - one knight only!
Adapted from Robert Nye's acclaimed novel, Falstaff merges Shakespeare's great comic creation with the real-life soldier, Sir John Fastolf. The result is a deeply moving, funny, bawdy romp through the middle-ages.
Agincourt, frogs, slugs and plenty of onions all receive the Falstaff touch, in this living, breathing, warts-and-all tapestry of our favourite, larger-than-life, old knight!
Death and the Maiden was written in 1990 by Chilean playwright Ariel Dorfman, receiving multiple awards.
Set in an unnamed country emerging from a dictatorship, the play explores the after effects of repression on peoples' lives.
Relentlessly paced and filled with lethal surprises, it is an inquest into the darker side of humanity--one in which everyone is implicated and justice itself comes to seem like a fragile, perhaps ambiguous invention. A tense psychological thriller about justice and relationships that will keep you breathless!
