Much ado About Falstaff


Much Ado About Falstaff - scroll down for performance dates

Written & directed by Simon Downing


Kick In The Head follow up recent successes with Old Herbaceous, Fagin?, Three Men in a Boat and Choice Grenfell with a new play about the Sir John Falstaff…a rogue, a philanderer and a glutton, but also one of Shakespeare’s greatest and enduring comic creations. 

In this new play by Simon Downing we find Falstaff, played by Giles Shenton (Old Herbaceous, Three Men in a Boat) in his bedroom in the Boars Head being nursed by Mistress Quickly played by Suzanna Walters (Choice Grenfell).

It is a time to reflect on a life of debauchery and excess and relive some of his more exciting escapades. Has he mellowed in old age…certainly not! He is as riotous a vagabond as he ever was.
