Shakespeare’s “Merry Wives of Windsor”

Once again we welcome The Festival Players Company, who bring a hilarious and colourful comedy to Cothay Manor this year. The “Merry Wives of Windsor”promises to be a delightful performance from this all-male cast of professional Shakespearian actors. The Festival Players is well established as a professional company and continues to grow in reputation. The company delivers the very best in open-air Shakespeare, so come and saviour the amazing atmosphere within this delightful setting. Christopher Hussey, historian and Country Life contributor said that Cothay Manor is  “one of the most perfect small fifteenth century country houses that survives in the Kingdom.”  The gardens, designed and planted by  owner Mrs Mary-Anne Robb, are indeed magnificent and have been featured in many magazine articles and gardening books.

The production is directed by Michael Dyer, with music by Johnny Coppin.
