Cygnet Company
The Merry Wives of Windsor
Director Amanda Knott
William Shakespeare’s epic and delightful comedy is a rollicking tale of marriage, fidelity, trickery and love.
The puffed up and degenerate Sir John Falstaff, a Knight of the Garter, is seized with the outrageous idea that to seduce two of Windsor’s wealthy merry wives will prove his virility and give him access to their money, but with female cunning and a devilish plot involving their husbands, Falstaff is repeatedly tricked by the women.

“Sheer Pleasure, don’t miss it!!!   remotegoat

Amanda Knott is a regular collaborator with Cygnet, directing Playhouse Creatures and Animal Farm for the Cygnet Company in 2015 and 2017. Formerly Associate Director of Theatre Royal, Plymouth, she is now Director of Creative Cow whose many productions have toured extensively around the UK.
