Sir John Falstaff spends his days in his local, The Garter Inn, conning and cajoling his mates into emptying their purses to feed his insatiable appetite. On tap today: seducing two local ladies, Meg Page and Alice Ford. Anyone who looks that good is sure to be rich!
The ladies have a rather different idea, creating a delightful mash of sparkling comedy, deceit, retaliation and romance; there is after all a tab to be paid.
Following a riotous reception in 2015, Keel Watson and his cronies are back, bringing the energy and wit of this rip-roaring comedy to life. With sumptuous singing and a Shakespearean plot brought to a perfect, giggling last order, this gem of an opera is a must see!

The stories you know from the characters you don’t. This family-friendly double bill comes from London's world-renowned venue, Shakespeare’s Globe.
In Romeo Untold, the story of Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet is retold through the eyes of the Capulet Ball's party planner. Titus Untold retells Shakespeare's goriest tragedy, Titus Andronicus, as seen from the kitchen of Titus’s piemaker.
These shows premiered to great critical and popular acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe, and are now touring internationally. Rediscover two Shakespearean classics together in just two hours including an interval.
By Harper Ray and Adam Sibbald
Based on the plays of William Shakespeare

Babel Literary Festival Day Events
- 18 June 2016 11:30am-10:30pm
Let Babel charm you for a day: you will meet great writers and tongue-mixers, hear the unheard and speak in tongues that weren’t yours.

But that is not all: Wilton’s welcomes an entire festival. Babel, a festival of literature and translation, creolization, instability, linguistic hospitality and diversities, leaves the steepest versants of the Swiss alps to reach your favorite Music Hall stage.
This unique border-crossing event will bring you voices and languages, worlds and rhythms, as well as cross art-form projects including a special gig by The Pussywarmers, the launch of the web’s first multilingual & typographical literary magazine, a live radio broadcast by radiogwen.ch and other side shows. Plus the after party at Libreria, the event’s official bookshop.
