Hidden in the Bois de Boulogne, in the Pré Catelan garden, the Théâtre de Verdure du Jardin Shakespeare is one of the most beautiful open-air theatres in the world. The audience sits on a large lawn around which are planted the flowers, trees and plants which are mentioned in five of Shakespeare's plays. Each year since 1992 the Tower Theatre Company has performed Shakespeare in this delightful setting.
In 2019, our 28th year in Paris, the Tower Theatre Company presents The Merry Wives of Windsor - a garden party extravaganza of Shakespeare's classic comedy. Laundry baskets at the ready!
Ford and Page have a problem. Sir John Falstaff is broke, and plans on seducing them in order to get to their husbands money. But Falstaff is a creep, and the Wives are cunning. They'll outmanoeuvre his tricks and humiliate him instead. In a town and society with men at the centre, the women of Windsor must come together, and teach them all a lesson they'll never forget.
The play will be presented in English with French sub-titles.
The performances at noon on Tuesday 4th June and Thursday 6th June are aimed particularly at students and school parties.
