THE MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR by William Shakespeare


June 16th to 20th




Two Score Theatre Company opens Ludlow Fringe Festival 2018 with five nights of The Merry Wives of Windsor, William Shakespeare’s riotous comedy.

In a production that fuses pantomime and farce, with a rubber fish thrown in for good measure, the wives in question successfully engineer the hilarious downfall of the money-grabbing, two-timing rogue, Sir John Falstaff.

Two Score Theatre Company are one of the founder members of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages scheme and the Ludlow Brewery is the perfect setting for their imaginative staging.

The Merry Wives of Windsor - it’s a romp and it's wonderfully daft – perfect midsummer madness.

Tickets £12, available online at and from The Ludlow Brewery.
