A 1950s take on Bard’s comedy

DERBYSHIRE-based theatre company Oddsocks will be performing their take on that Shakespearean favourite The Merry Wives Of Windsor, at Derby Theatre on January 19 and 20.

There’s a right raucous rumbustious romp going on in jolly old Windsor town and no mistake.

Hold on to your 1950s-style hats as two merry wives give that lovable ‘naughty knight’, that most famous of the Bard’s characters, fun-loving Falstaff, a shock he’ll never forget, in return for his unwanted amorous attentions.

Laughter, surprises and fun for all the family are guaranteed.

The performances begin at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £15 (£13 concessions) and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
