With 2016 commemorating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, this new production by Melbourne’s Nothing But Roaring of Shakespeare’s funniest play of love and lies, fidelity and forgiveness, will transform the New Fortune Theatre into a chamber of laughter. The play features the corrupt and cowardly knight, Sir John Falstaff, who accompanied Prince Hal in Henry IV. In Falstaff’s latest escapades, he attempts to woo two wealthy married women. Rather than turn down the buffooning Falstaff, the ladies conspire to have a laugh (and a little vengance) at his expense.
