See Shakespeare performed in a historic courtyard during the first few days of this month.
Shakespeare at The George has been entertaining audiences from The George Hotel in Huntingdon since 1959. The atmospheric courtyard setting, with its timber staircase and gallery, makes for an ideal stage and allows audiences to experience Shakespeare in much the same way as it was originally intended.
This year’s production is The Merry Wives of Windsor, starring one of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters, Sir John Falstaff. With his friends and hangers-on, Falstaff has been outraging Windsor society with his rowdy behaviour. Parson Evans and Justice Shallow are on the case. Meanwhile, Anne Page is the hottest catch in town and suitors from all walks of life are fighting for her hand. Tricks and table-turning ensues.
It’s showing from 23 June to 4 July, 7.30pm. Tickets £10.
