When greasy knight John Falstaff slides into their DMs with identical love messages, Meg and Alice turn to their local WhatsApp group to plan vengeance on him and their useless husbands. How like you these Merry Wives?
Written and adapted by Olivia Mace (the mastermind behind Bleak House) and Lizzie Hopley (returning to us after 9 years following stints as a Roaring Girl with the RSC and writer of Big Finish’s Doctor Who audio plays), these two Zoom novices will have you in hysterics.
A modern re-imagining of Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor directed by Natasha Rickman (The Time Machine 2020), The Merry Wives of WhatsApp is a play of women, wine and wheelie bins.
Back by popular demand!
“The jokes come so thick and fast that really this play needs to be seen twice to catch them all. It’s a LOL comedy that is authentic and true to the spirit of the Shakespeare, but also bitingly relevant to this year’s lockdown experiences.” Jon Lewis, Newbury Today
