CORIOLANUS is one of Shakespeare's most overtly political plays about a military society that values honour, valour and courage. In this new staging, David Farr deftly combines Eastern and Western cultures to produce an evening that is both compelling and exhilarating.

THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR is often referred to as Shakespeare's middle-class sitcom, The Merry Wives of Windsor is a mischievous romp through Windsor society, following Mistresses Ford and Page as they hilariously rebuff Falstaff's advances. Rachel Kavanaugh has set the production in the late 1940s, drawing inspiration from the great Ealing comedies of the period.
