The Norwich Players relaunch the Maddermarket Theatre with an open-air production of Shakespeare’s boisterous comedy The Merry Wives of Windsor, reimagined as The Merry Wives of Norwich.
The Norwich Players’ long association with Shakespeare started in 1921 when we opened our doors of the Maddermarket Theatre with the Merry Wives in our opening season.
Join an audience of 50 in the theatre courtyard to see Elizabethan Norwich thrown into confusion by the arrival of roguish Sir John Falstaff. Short of cash, he hatches a plot to woo the wives of two wealthy citizens, with disastrous consequences – for him! Scheming, farce and a gallery of memorable characters, with a dash of young love for good measure, guarantee a lively end of summer treat.
In the event of bad weather, the performance will move into the theatre auditorium where social distancing will be no problem.
27th-30th August at 6pm. 2pm performances on 28th to 30th.
Price : £10 adults; £5 concessions (Student, Over 65, Under 16)
Suitable for age 11+.
